Hiltron Communications has strengthened its management team.

Joachim Kärcher steps up to the position of Chairman, succeeded as Managing Director by Jochen Ermel.

Joachim Kärcher joined Hiltron in March 2019 where he held the role Financial Director as well as, from 2022 until today, Managing Director. In addition to the chairmanship of Hiltron, he continues as Managing Director of ESA Microwave GmbH – a position to which he was appointed when the assets of the former ESA Microwave were purchased by Hiltron in January 2021.

"Joachim Kärcher is highly efficient administrator who has contributed strongly to the progress of Hiltron Communications and ESA Microwave," said Ole Clausen, co-Geschäftsführer of both companies. "His commercial experience and team leadership skills continue to be very greatly appreciated. In addition to his new role as Chairman of Hiltron Communications, he remains Managing Director of ESA Microwave GmbH."

"Hiltron Communications and ESA Microwave have both proved their resilience as innovators across the satellite systems development and manufacturing sector," Joachim Kärcher added. "I am confident that the two companies will sustain their commercial and technical momentum in both the broadcast and wider telecommunications sectors."

Hiltron's new MD, Jochen Ermel, graduated in civil engineering and environmental technology at Bundeswehr University Munich, followed by 10 years working in the field of finance. Subsequently joining Rosenberger Hochfrequenztechnik GmbH & Co. KG, he specialised in the development of product strategies and promotion across a wide range application areas and geographical regions. "Hiltron Communications has an excellent reputation as an internationally active designer and producer of high-precision satellite communication equipment and systems," he commented. "Satellite communication technology is developing rapidly, particularly in LEO sector with its ability to supplement ground-based telco networks across large areas of sparsely inhabited terrain. We will build on Hilton's proven capabilities in broadcasting, defence, secure communications and science through a consistent growth strategy."
