Theodore Asampong is the CEO of West Africa Platform Services Ltd, a JV company between SES and K-Net, providing satellite broadcast services to channels in Ghana and the West Africa subregion. He also holds a position as General Manager, Platform Operations at SES Video, responsible for West Africa.
Theodore joined SES in February 2000 as a sales engineer. He later moved into a sales role in 2003, responsible for West and Central Africa. During this time, he visited several countries in the subregion, promoting DTH or a hybrid DTH/DTT as a cost-effective solution for DSO. This led to him making the move to the platform operations team in December 2014, where he worked on developing the West Africa platforms for Ghana and Nigeria and was instrumental in the DSO programs for both countries.
Before SES, Theodore worked for LogicaCMG as a consultant in their Space Division, working on Satellite Control Systems for a European Satellite Operator for 3 years. Prior to that, he worked as a systems developer at the Defence Evaluation and Research Agency (DERA), joining in 1996.
Theodore holds a BSc in Physics from Imperial College, London and MSc in Spacecraft Technology from University College London.
