Update: The Satnews Publishers' Satellite Innovation Is Now the Home of SSPI's Future Leaders Dinner

Satnews Publishers is the host of two major upcoming events, Satellite Innovation in Silicon Valley from October 8-11, and SSPI's Future Leaders Dinner.

As most realize, the future of the satellite industry depends upon a rich pool of talented professionals who contribute their knowledge to various programs, missions and products.

Together the Satnews' Satellite Innovation event and SSPI's Future Leaders Dinner will be memorable. The Future Leaders Dinner is relocating from the east coast to California to combine with the Satellite Innovation event, where the two will deliver a convergence of new talent and energy as well as offering the expertise of senior industry leaders. 

Jorge Villarreal Schutz, founder and CEO of Elara Comunicaciones, received the Mentor Award

Several of these future leaders are honored each year by Space & Satellite Professionals International (SSPI — www.sspi.org). This well respected organization was founded in 1983, with Sir Arthur C. Clarke serving as the honorary chairman, which provides support, services and information to the various industries and personnel that lead and support the vast space and satellite enterprises around the world.

Foremost among the SSPI programs is their “Future Leaders Dinner,” which brings to the forefront three young satellite professionals who, prior to their 35th birthday, have already made substantial contributions to their companies as well as to the industry.

Last year’s winners were Ryan Carlisle of SpaceX, Joyeeta Chatterjee of Reed Smith and Jamal A. Mani of Boeing Satellite Systems, with additional attention given to Jorge Villarreal Schutz,  founder and CEO of Elara Comunicaciones, who received the coveted Mentor Award.
