Actively serving on the MSUA Board of Directors for the past 15 years, Rebecca is engaged in reaching out to new, innovative companies and connecting them into the association’s network. She also shares technical knowledge and experience to help companies navigate regulatory processes.
Rebecca Cowen-Hirsch said “This is an exciting time to be in the satellite industry. We’re witnessing massive transformation within the mobility sector, and the MSUA member organizations are at the forefront of that innovation and creativity.
“I’m determined to continue working with these companies and help the association expand its membership to engage the user community and ensure their perspectives are represented within MSUA. Their voices are vital as the SATCOM industry continues to evolve, and I’m proud to represent Inmarsat in these critical dialogues.”
