ViaSat... @ SATCON 2012 With... An Executive Award! (Event)

Mark Dankberg, Chairman and CEO of ViaSat
[SatNews] Mark Dankberg, chairman and CEO of ViaSat Inc. (Nasdaq: VSAT), has been named Visionary Executive of the Year ...

...SATCON 2012 in New York City. The award goes to the outstanding senior executive of a satellite company who demonstrated a keen sense of mission for his company and a forward-looking vision of where his company and the industry is heading."

"I'm delighted to accept this award," said Mr. Dankberg. "I looked up visionary in the dictionary. As an adjective the dictionary uses words like unreal, impractical, and imaginary, and as a noun it says someone with keen foresight. If that second description is what is intended here, then I truly am honored by this award. And the difference between those two definitions is a team of people who can bring that unreal vision to life. That's what this is about. ViaSat has 2500 incredibly talented people and without them, I would not be here."
