Hanwha Phasor targets US expansion with new senior hires

Hanwha Phasor has announced two new key hires as part of the business’ expansion into the US market. Richard LePage joins the organization as a Business Development Director, United States Government (USG), and Scott McCobb joins as Hanwha Phasor’s Commercial Director, Aviation – both positions will include a seat on Hanwha Phasor’s leadership team.


The new leadership roles will see LePage tasked with executing marketing strategies, plans, and programs aimed at key US Government prospects, whilst McCobb will execute marketing strategies, plans and programs aimed at key aviation organizations. Alongside this, both LePage and McCobb will support the R&D team with product roadmaps by providing market trends and analyzing competitors for business development. Both new members of staff will report directly to the Vice President of Business Development to ensure a seamless international strategy for Hanwha Phasor’s wide portfolio of satellite communications solutions, as Hanwha Phasor enters into the US market.


LePage had a decorated 21-year career in the US Armed Forces, spending 16 years focusing on satellite communications and R&D for US Special Operations with his career culminating as part of the Joint Special Operations Command. Following this, he joined the industry with numerous senior business development roles in companies including Ultra Intelligence and Communications, and Envistacom.

Scott McCobb has an extensive career in program management, working previously at Raytheon Technical Services for over five years, as well as six years at Astronics AeroSat Corporation. Further to this, McCobb has experience handling significant budgets to execute R&D projects whilst working with regulators to guarantee business success.


The announcement demonstrates a clear intention from the business to increase its interest in the United States for the sale of its satellite communications solutions, which have both civilian and defense applications. Hanwha Phasor has previously indicated its interest in the US, and these hires mark the formalization of the start of its operations in North America.


Hanwha Phasor will soon be exhibiting at Satellite 2024 in Washington D.C, where the business is showcasing its portfolio of active electronically steered antennas (AESA). The business is also using the conference as a platform to make a number of key announcements about its product line and international growth.


Richard LePage, Business Development Director, USG at Hanwha Phasor said:

“I am excited to join the team at Hanwha Phasor, the products and solutions that they will provide customers is a key step change in the connectivity solutions available on the market. I will support with developing the technological advantage Hanwha Phasor provides, and I look forward to communicating this with the US Government in the coming weeks and months.”


Scott McCobb, Commercial Director Aviation at Hanwha Phasor said:

“I am thrilled to work at Hanwha Phasor, to help grow the business’ customer base in aerospace as well as help drive further innovation with the products the business has to offer. Hanwha Phasor’s products are a key step-change in the aviation sector and will provide the highest level of connectivity for airline customers across the globe.” 


Michael Young, Vice President Business Development at Hanwha Phasor said:

“We are pleased to welcome Richard and Scott to our team, their experience will be a significant addition. These new hires mark a key point for the business as we look to expand into the US, working with commercial and government customers who will all benefit from improved mobile connectivity capabilities offered by our family of satellite communication solutions.”
