Rick Hodgkinson

Founder, President & CEO at Galaxy Broadband


Rick is one of Canada’s satellite pioneers and was one of the very first to introduce satellite communications technologies for voice, data, and entertainment to the oil & gas industry beginning in Northern Alberta in 1981 and has evolved to the national stage with the formation of Galaxy Satellite in 1992 evolving to Galaxy Broadband Communications. For the past twenty five years, Rick has personally worked with industry dealers and end users to acquire an in depth knowledge of satellite and remote communications in general.  

The satellite broadband business is one of the most dynamic industries in the world and requires leadership coupled with grass roots understanding to build a business that will sustain itself long into the future. Rick provides this leadership to Galaxy Broadband and through his talents, Galaxy has grown to be one of the leading providers of broadband satellite communications to both businesses, remote projects of every kind and consumers throughout North America.
