TYSONS CORNER, VA May 22, 2015 — Iridium Communications (Nasdaq: IRDM) has donated 11 satellite phones to the International Telecommunications Union for use in first responder emergency communications and recovery missions during natural disasters, ExecutiveBiz reported Thursday.

“The work ITU is doing in Nepal, as well as in other disaster-stricken areas, is vital, ” Iridium CEO Matt Desch, an inductee into Executive Mosaic’s Wash100 for 2015, said Wednesday. “After an event such as this series of earthquakes, much of the telecom infrastructure is often damaged or destroyed, making the need for communications supported by a global, reliable satellite network crucial to the recovery work that will occur in the days and weeks to come.
