For Immediate Release

Baltimore, MD (July 31, 2014) – At the recent 5th Annual HughesNet Summit, held June, 2014, in Baltimore, Maryland, it was announced that Alan Thompson, owner of El Dorado Satellite in Placerville, California, has been appointed to the HughesNet national Dealer Advisory Council, a working group formed by Hughes Network Systems, the world's leading provider of satellite Internet communications systems.

Thompson, who has worked within the satellite communications industry for more than 30 years, will join with eight other leading, independent Retailers from across the country on the Dealer Advisory Council. The Council seeks to leverage the expertise of successful HughesNet Retailers to help other HughesNet Retailers enhance sales and customer satisfaction with HughesNet products.

"I'm truly honored to serve on the HughesNet Dealer Advisory Council," said Thompson. "HughesNet recognizes that their customers generally experience a higher level of service and support when they buy their service through local Retailers. With a wealth of hands-on, face-to-face customer experience, the Council Members are in a unique position to provide first-hand insights and opportunities to other HughesNet Retailers and the HughesNet management team. By serving on this Council, my goal is to help all HughesNet Retailers around the country reach more customers, and thereby create more satisfied customers. That's a triple win for HughesNet, HughesNet Retailers, and HughesNet Customers."
