Dean Olmstead Is Out as SES Americom President

SES Global on Sept. 10 announced the abrupt departure of Dean Olmstead as president of SES Americom, the company’s U.S. subsidiary. Olmstead will “pursue other interests,” according to a terse company statement.

Olmstead was one of the engineers of the 2001 purchase of GE Americom by SES. SES Global Chairman Romain Bausch and the company’s three-member management committee will assume the direction of Americom until a successor to Olmstead is found.
