In announcing the appointment, EM Solutions chief executive Rowan Gilmore said, "General Sengelman has had an outstanding and highly decorated career as a soldier, and we are delighted he will bring his experience and strategic insights to our board of directors. His leadership credentials and drive to modernise defence capability are well known, and will accelerate our company’s ability to develop and deliver continuously improving capability to our customers."

Sengelman served in the Australian Army for nearly four decades, most recently as the Special Operations Commander of Australia where he was responsible for Special Forces units such as the SAS Regiment and Commandos operating across the globe. In this position, he was the trusted senior adviser to government and the Chief of the Defence Force on security issues of the highest national significance, and a principal adviser on Counter Terrorism.

Upon his appointment to the EM Solutions board, Sengelman said, “I want to continue serving Australia and its allies during this next phase of my career. By working on the board of a company that is growing and highly innovative, and contributing already to sovereign defence capability, I hope to help EM Solutions cement its position as a major exporter and go-to company for defence communications products and services."
