The Globecomm executive team gained a new partner in February, when Jeff Garte became the company’s new Chief Financial Officer. In this role, Mr. Garte will lead Globecomm’s financial aspects of the company, including accounting, tax, financial planning and analysis, treasury and IT, required to support continued growth. He will also assist the executive team in executing on existing and supporting new growth strategies.
Mr. Garte has more than fifteen years of financial and operational experience in public and private companies. Prior to joining Globecomm, he served at Hibernia Networks for nearly four years as the senior vice president of corporate development, managing corporate development, FP&A, and procurement.
Before Hibernia, Mr. Garte was VP of FP&A at Sterling Infosystems, where he built a high-performing centralized FP&A team. He also served as VP of finance at AboveNet, where his responsibilities included corporate development, FP&A, investor relations, project cost management and procurement.
“Adding Jeff builds on our strong revenue growth momentum and significantly strengthens our financial team as well as our executive team, where he will share in executing Globecomm’s business plan and strategic initiatives,” said Globecomm CEO Jason Juranek. “His broad financial experience and business acumen will provide the kind of skilled leadership that makes him a perfect fit for our company.”
Mr. Garte earned his MBA from Columbia University in New York City and also holds a bachelor’s degree from Hamilton College based in Clinton, NY.
