Fresh out of bankruptcy reorganization, Global Eagle now has a new Senior VP Commercial in the Inflight Connectivity division. Nancy Walker takes over that role just a few days after her departure from SmartSky was confirmed.
I am proud to be joining Global Eagle during this period of growth and will be drawing upon my experience in strategy, operations and execution to ensure we continue providing our airline customers with the very best connectivity solutions on the market.– Nancy Walker, Incoming Global Eagle SVP Commercial, Inflight Connectivity
In her new position, Walker will lead sales and account management for inflight connectivity at Global Eagle.
She most recently served as Chief Commercial Officer for SmartSky Networks, helping that company build the commercial operations around its air-to-ground offering over the past three years. Prior to that she held leadership roles at Thales and Leonardo DRS among other organizations in her 25+ year career.
Commenting on the hiring, Global Eagle CEO Josh Marks notes, “As the airline industry looks to recover in 2021, we are committed to supporting our customers with the highest performing inflight connectivity solutions to exceed passenger expectations. Nancy’s extensive background leading inflight connectivity and satellite communications projects will help us achieve this goal.”
