The financial year just ended was characterised, among many new product and service developments, also by the prosecution of an internationalisation project which has led our Group to the direct management of numerous geographical areas.
Putting together so many excellent skills has been anything but an ordinary enterprise, successfully concluded thanks to the talent of the team tasked to reach these results. We are therefore delighted to thank all those who have contributed, directly and indirectly, to drive our Groups where we are now.
A significant growth in staff numbers, with an expansion in the stakeholders basis and human resources directly engaged in everyday work has matched the growth of the Viasat Group in last years. Our sincerest thanks go to them too. It is said that the first three Criticall factors for the success of a company are people, people and people. I agree with this generalisation, from which of course derive a series of considerations that guide corporate processes and decisions.
The sectors in which we operate continue to be characterised by a double digit growth and our best competitors drive us every day to improve on our position in the competitive arena, on the creation of value for our customers, and on the economic and environmental sustainability of our entrepreneurial and managerial efforts.
In addition to all this, they lead us every day to question ourselves on why we do what we do, how we do it and the final product/service that we intend to put to the market as the conclusive result of our processes. This dynamic of rationalisation yet again confirms that Viasat technologies contribute to the improvement of the lives of the people and companies that decide to use them. The desire to realise them with the best techniques and materials of the greatest quality is only one of the consequences of this. The breadth of our range of products and services is also a consequence of this.
The intention to improve the lives of people and companies, this is the true fuel which feeds the engine of the Viasat Group’s organisation.
