Joe Spytek

CEO, ITC Global

Biography

As ITC Global’s Chief Executive Officer, Joe Spytek drives the strategic direction and growth for the organization, which became a subsidiary of Panasonic Corporation in 2015. As part of Panasonic’s mobility communications business, ITC Global provides end-to-end satellite communications to energy, mining and maritime companies that operate in remote and harsh environments.

In ITC Global’s 16 years of operation, the organization has become a trusted communications provider by differentiating on exemplary customer service and bringing innovative technologies to market. Today, ITC Global is the market leader in satellite communications to the mining industry, and among the top three providers to the energy and maritime markets.

Joe brings 25 years of experience in entrepreneurial leadership. Before he co-founded ITC Global in 2001, Joe built several successful international telecommunications companies. Caribbean Network Management was the first independent telecommunications provider in the Netherlands Antilles, which was later sold to Belgacom Group and remains the number two carrier in the region. Joe also co-founded StarPoint Card Services, the largest distributor of pre-paid calling cards in the U.K., and ClariNet, the first mass-market consumer VOIP service provider in Australia.

Joe began his career in the maritime industry with Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute, where he spent more than 200 days per year at sea, ultimately becoming the company’s youngest certified submersible pilot. Joe holds a Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from Vanderbilt University.
