The Satellite Hall of Fame was introduced in 1987 to recognise the valuable contributions of the visionaries and pioneers who have made possible the age of satellite communications - individuals who have devoted their careers to the advancement of technology and to helping build the political and commercial foundations of the industry.

In its commendation praising the achievements of the President and CEO of SES, SSPI notes that "since joining SES in 1995, Romain Bausch provided the leadership that transformed SES from a regional satellite company offering direct-to-home TV distribution in Europe to a global satellite operator serving broadcasters, telcos, enterprise, and government customers. Under his leadership, SES became one of the big "consolidators" in the FSS industry, integrating among others Nordic Satellite AB, GE Americom and New Skies Satellites, and also providing significant investment and support to O3b Networks. He managed this expansion program while keeping SES on a solid financial footing and took the company public in a successful IPO in 1998. Romain Bausch is also Vice Chairman of the Board of Directors of O3b Networks, member of the Board of the European Satellite Operators' Association (ESOA) and a Directr of Luxembourg's Business Federation. In 2002, he was honoured as Via Satellite's Satellite Executive of the Year."
