Ramin Khadem, CFO, Inmarsat
Inmarsat is one of the largest and most complex multi-national telecommunications companies in the world. This company started life in the public sector and its stock was owned by more than eighty countries. Its purpose was to interlink and unify, what was at the time, the rather chaotic global aviation and marine communication systems. Not only has Mr Khadem overseen the growth of Inmarsat over the last twenty years and its transition from the public to the private sector with his effective management style, but also it is amazing to think that from all the candidates for a job that requires the appeasement of representatives from eighty countries, Ramin Khadem was chosen to lead this project.
