[Satnews] Euroconsult today announced the hiring of Sima Fishman as Managing Director of Euroconsult USA. In this role Sima will manage the development of Euroconsult's services for U.S. customers and Euroconsult's Washington D.C. office. Sima will work closely with Susan Irwin, Principal Advisor at Euroconsult who has run Euroconsult USA since its debut in 2010.
Sima has a long history of providing strategic and financial analyses to clients in the ICT sector. Her work, primarily in the U.S., Africa, and Asia, has included valuation, due diligence, feasibility analysis, and sector and regulatory structure assessment.

"We are delighted to have Sima as part of the team and look forward to her contributions to our business," said Pacome Revillon, CEO of Euroconsult. "Sima's extensive consulting background and experience in the satellite sector are a great match with our company and a major step in our strategy to expand our capabilities in the U.S. market."
"This is an exciting time to be part of Euroconsult's expansion in the U.S.," said Sima Fishman. "Euroconsult's strategy and business focus and on-the-ground presence around the world, combined with a U.S.-based analytical team, offers a unique value proposition to American companies, lenders, and investors."
"I look forward to working with Sima to take Euroconsult USA to the next level," said Susan Irwin. "We've come a long way in the past five years. It is a time of change in the satellite industry, with new players and new ideas. We are ready to support the changing environment in the U.S. market and look forward to making a difference."
"I'd like to thank Susan for pioneering the U.S. office, she was instrumental in getting us off the ground," continued Mr. Revillon. "We will continue to collaborate with her moving forward and are excited about the prospects that lie ahead."
