OPT Expands Commercial Team With Indonesia-Based Representative

2020 08 Asia Pacific

Newly Created Strategic Role Will Execute OPT’s Asia-Pacific Market Expansion

We are excited to announce the addition of Gilar Prakoso to the OPT Commercial team as Asia-Pacific Representative, based in Jakarta, Indonesia.

“The Asia-Pacific region presents significant opportunities for OPT’s power and communications solutions among nations concerned with maritime border enforcement and safeguarding vast oceanic resources,” said George H. Kirby, President and Chief Executive Officer of OPT. “Gilar’s fluency with local maritime agencies and industry, and his established relationships are essential to growing OPT’s customer base and cultivating regional partnerships. We are excited to have him on board to execute our market expansion strategy and promote our capabilities in this area of the world.”

In Indonesia and throughout the Asia-Pacific region, OPT is developing new opportunities for protecting territorial waters, fortifying illegal fishing prosecution and prevention, and supporting oil well decommissioning in the area. The addition of an Asia-Pacific Representative builds on the Company’s existing business relationship with Taiwan-based satellite data solutions provider BAP Precision, Inc. to pursue joint surveillance solutions for government agencies announced earlier this year.

In his role, Mr. Prakoso will provide local and regional support of OPT’s commercial activities, including direct sales, strategic relationships, and project execution.
