Long Time Satellite Executive Readies For Next Chapter
Microspace Communications Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of Capitol Broadcasting Company, recently announced that Joseph L. Amor III (Joe) the company’s VP and GM, has decided to retire effective Sept. 27, 2018.
Amor has been with the company for 26 years and has served in his current role since 1995. During his tenure, Microspace became one of the world’s largest satellite based communications companies growing from approximately 70,000 locations to well over a quarter of a million. He has also been instrumental in guiding the company in the development and introduction of new technology that will ensure the company’s continued prosperity.
According to James F. Goodmon Jr. President and COO of Capitol Broadcasting Company, “Joe has contributed over a quarter of a century of service to Microspace. His accomplishments have been many and his contributions to the success of the company won’t soon be forgotten.”
Prior to joining Microspace in July of 1992, Joe was actually a customer while employed at Knight Ridder Financial in Kansas City, KS. He was a member of the Microspace sales team for 3 years before taking the helm as VP and GM. “I feel so fortunate to have had an opportunity to lead Microspace over the past 2 decades. The company has an impeccable reputation and has always been viewed as an industry leader. I’m certainly pleased to have had a small role in making that happen.”
Joe plans to spend his retirement days on the golf course, on the beach in Oak Island NC with wife Debbie and with his growing group of grandchildren.
Amor’s successor is expected to be announced in the coming weeks.
