Summer is a time for fun in the sun, for vacations, hobbies and taking a step back from the usual business of the industry. In this podcast, SSPI Director of Development and Innovation Lou Zacharilla checks in with Hogan Lovells Partner and 2018 Mentor of the Year Randy Segal on her summer plans and hears a bit more about Hogan Lovells' recent virtual Youtube concert.
Randy Segal co-heads the Global Space Practice at Hogan Lovells, a position she has held for ten years. Her career in the space and satellite industry started in 1992, and includes many leadership roles, including serving as general counsel or director, for American Mobile Satellite Corporation, XM Satellite Radio, Hughes Network Systems, TerreStar Networks (now EchoStar), and Mobile Satellite Ventures/SkyTerra (now Ligado Networks). As a partner at Hogan Lovells, Randy represents a wide range of clients, including some of the most active global satellite innovators and new space companies, startups, large Silicon Valley players, and even sovereign governments. Throughout her career, Randy has served as a mentor, guide, and advisor for aspiring space professionals, particularly the growing number of young women entering the field. Her efforts include working with SatNews to profile more women at its SmallSat and Satellite Innovation Symposiums, as well as working actively with the Women in Space Initiative to advocate for mentorship and support for women in the satellite industry. For these contributions and many others, Randy was named the 2018 SSPI Mentor of the Year. Learn more about Randy.
