He is now the owner and CEO of ABB International Consulting, LLC.

Ahead of the event, Mr Berhane has written a letter of invitation, from which an excerpt is below:
"This forum is designed to provide a place for all levels of military, government and industry to meet, discuss, and align their vision to continually improve US MILSATCOM to meet today’s threat with the most advanced technologies available. It offers an opportunity to explore critical topics (such as the emergence of the US Space Force and the importance of rapid acquisition), raise questions, and network with stakeholders from around the DoD to formulate the next iteration of US MILSATCOM readiness. Moreover, it also brings leading allied partners to the table to present their perspective and share their unique expertise to explore ideas for mutually beneficial ends.

"In putting together the agenda, we have brought together a group of leaders and practitioners who really know SATCOM: from overall direction to cutting edge programs to operational end-users, there is no better place to explore all facets of MILSATCOM and gain clarity about the way ahead. This will ensure that we stay firmly at the forefront and consistently provide our Warfighters with the ability to fight and win."
