Stéphane C. Goebel, French-German national, has joined the media broadcast business in 1994 after his studies of Business Administration and Economics. He started his professional career in licensing of sports marketing, TV- and IP-broadcast rights, before moving on to the software business. After that he ran the international business of one of the most prestigious German CE manufacturers for nearly 4 years, where he was responsible for all the international subsidiaries in countries around the World.
Stéphane has joined the SES group in 2005 and has since strongly developed international video-centric businesses of SES, and more specifically for SES Platform Services GmbH – now called MX1. He is based, together with his family, in Munich (Germany).
In Q2/2017, Stéphane had been appointed as Vice President, heading ‘Platform Operations’ on the SES Video side. This was a global role within the SES Video unit, overseeing the operations of all video platforms of strategic relevance to the SES group. Prior to that role, Stéphane had been Vice President and ‘Head of Sales, Services’ for the territories Africa and Middle East.
He has now embarked in a new role to coordinate, optimize and sell video content solutions to non-satellite-broadcast related third parties. Ideally – and ultimately – in combination with SES satellite capacity and ground solutions.
