Mark Dankberg, Chairman and CEO, Viasat

As a technologist, entrepreneur and business leader, Mark Dankberg has created an organization that pioneered a series of technologies with major impact on the evolution of defense, mobile and Internet communications.  Mark co-founded Viasat with Mark Miller and Steve Hart in 1986 with less than $25,000 in capital.  His partners served and continue to serve as the company’s chief technical officers, while Mark became the company’s CEO.  Under his leadership, Viasat has consistently been one of America’s fastest growing technology companies.

Mark is an acknowledged industry expert in aerospace, defense, and satellite communications, and is the leading visionary for a new generation of high-capacity satellite systems. He has co-authored several military standards on satellite networking, and holds a number of patents in communications and satellite networking technologies. He has participated on Department of Defense advisory panels and was invited to testify before a Congressional committee on high technology growth companies and IPOs. For his many achievements, Mark was inducted into the Space & Satellite Hall of Fame in 2015.
