Harris CapRock Communications... Moving On Up...
Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS) has named Tom Eaton president of the company's global communications services business, Harris CapRock Communications. Eaton will use his extensive experience within the international satellite and telecommunications sectors to continue building Harris as the leader in end-to-end communications for clients' mission-critical operations. Eaton most recently served as Harris CapRock's global operations officer and formerly led the business' government division, where he tripled its annual revenue between 2008 and 2011. Eaton transitioned the business from a bandwidth reseller to a fully managed services and terrestrial network provider. He led the strategic growth of a key terrestrial program, the DISN Access Transport Services (DATS) contract, and managed the subsequent acquisition of Core180's terrestrial infrastructure, which was part of the DATS business. This infrastructure now serves as the foundation of Harris CapRock's global terrestrial network.
Previously, Eaton was president of G2 Satellite Solutions, a wholly-owned subsidiary of PanAmSat, where he was responsible for developing innovative communications solutions for the U.S. and international government markets. While at PanAmSat he also served as executive vice president of global sales and marketing. Prior to that, Eaton led Intelsat's global sales and customer support organization and also served as co-founder and vice president of sales and marketing for Integrated Network Services, Inc. During his career Eaton has served clients in a broad range of markets including energy, healthcare, broadcast, enterprise, telecom, and government.
