KVH Announces Two Key Leadership Positions for the Global Company

MIDDLETOWN, R.I.-  KVH Industries, Inc., (Nasdaq: KVHI), a leader in global mobile connectivity and inertial navigation solutions, today announced that Brent Bruun has expanded his responsibilities as chief operating officer, and Mark Woodhead has been named executive vice president of mobile connectivity. The promotions leverage the business and maritime industry experience of the two leaders.

In his role as chief operating officer, Mr. Bruun will now spearhead corporate business development; oversee all operational and financial aspects of KVH’s mobile connectivity and inertial navigation businesses; lead financial planning and analysis; foster investor relations; and work toward organizational excellence across the global company. Mr. Bruun joined KVH in early 2008 and served as executive vice president of the mobile broadband group, the company’s largest business unit. Prior to joining KVH, Mr. Bruun was senior vice president with satellite operator SES Americom, and gained his strong corporate financial background from positions held with GE Capital and KPMG earlier in his career.

“I look forward to accelerating growth for KVH as we continue to strengthen our leadership market share with our mobile connectivity products and services, particularly in maritime VSAT, and increase the demand for our inertial solutions in the fast growing autonomous markets,” says Mr. Bruun, who is based in KVH’s global headquarters in Middletown, Rhode Island.

In Mr. Woodhead’s new role as executive vice president of mobile connectivity, he takes on leadership for EMEA, Asia, and Americas commercial sales; global leisure sales; KVH VideotelTM and KVH Media Group; global sales operations; and product line management. Mr. Woodhead previously served as KVH’s senior vice president, EMEA, overseeing mobile connectivity sales activities in the region and also overseeing KVH Videotel on a global basis. Mr. Woodhead has a strong background in sales and the commercial maritime industry, having focused on these areas for more than 20 years; he is based in KVH’s Leeds, U.K., office.

In making both announcements, KVH’s chief executive officer, Martin Kits van Heyningen, said: “We are fortunate to have such a strong internal team here at KVH. We are entering 2019 with terrific momentum and I have every confidence that these changes will further our success.”
