BeetleSat Rounds Out New Leadership Team With Key Hires

Joining the space tech firm are industry veterans Patricio Northland and Moshe Golani.

BeetleSat, a global leader in telecommunications and satellite technology, announced the addition of two new executives to its leadership team. The recent additions include Patricio Northland and Moshe Golani, who join the company as Executive President and Chief Operating Officer, respectively. These moves come at a time of significant growth for BeetleSat, as the company looks to transform into a satellite operator of a novel broadband constellation.

“I firmly believe that the key to success in the space industry is working with the best and brightest minds in the field,” said BeetleSat CEO Dr. Raz Itzhaki. “Moshe’s and Patricio’s appointments are a testament to that belief, and we’re confident that under our bolstered leadership, we can successfully transition into a leading global satellite operator.”

Patricio Northland brings a wealth of experience to his new role, having served in senior leadership positions at major telecommunications companies. His previous roles include CEO of Eutelsat Americas, CEO of SATMEX, and Chairman, President, and CEO of AT&T Latin America. During his tenure at SATMEX, Northland transformed the company into one of the most profitable satellite operators in the world and oversaw its successful merger with Eutelsat in 2014.

“BeetleSat’s expandable antennas are a huge breakthrough in the intersatellite link technology, and they are a key competitive advantage,” said Northland. “We already have a strong foundation and an incredible team, and I’m really looking forward to working with everyone on our BeetleSat network.”

The BeetleSat network refers to a new, high-performance LEO Ka-band satellite constellation. This infrastructure provides access to high-quality global Ka-band connectivity for commercial and government applications like cellular backhaul and trunking, secure point-to-point communications, mobility services, and other low-latency premium options.

Northland is joined by space industry veteran Moshe Golani, who will assume the role of COO. Golani joins BeetleSat from AMOS Space Comm, where he served as Senior VP of Engineering and Operations. At AMOS, Golani led the operations of their advanced satellite fleet, providing broadcast and broadband services across various continents. Prior to AMOS, Golani held various positions in the hi-tech and space industries, including Head of Communications & Information Technologies at the Israeli Ministry of Defense.

“I’m thrilled to be joining BeetleSat at such an exciting time in the company’s development,” said Golani. “We’re already working on some of the most cutting-edge projects in the satellite communications industry, and I’m looking forward to helping take us to new heights.”

BeetleSat has developed antenna technologies that boost the effectiveness of communications services by increasing bandwidth at a lower cost per bit. Their target markets include manufacturers and operators of LEO and GEO satellites across all applications, from broadband communications, IoT, and data imaging to weather. Their customer base currently includes developers and manufacturers of spacecraft and satellites, as well as owners and providers of satellite services.

In their new roles, Golani and Northland will be tasked with continuing this momentum and driving the company’s transformation into a global satellite operator by designing, developing, and deploying the BeetleSat constellation by 2026.
