DISH Network has appointed Paul Orban as chief accounting officer. He also will continue to serve in his current role as corporate controller.

Orban is responsible for all aspects of DISH’s accounting department, including external financial reporting, technical accounting policy, income tax accounting, and internal controls. He has had key roles in significant debt offerings, acquisitions and divestitures over the years including the “spinoff” of Echostar in 2008, which created two independent, publicly traded companies: DISH Network and Echostar, a global provider of satellite operations and video delivery solutions.

Following the spinoff, Orban was senior vice president and corporate controller for both DISH Network and Echostar until 2012. Today, he remains corporate controller for DISH.

Orban joined DISH in 1996 as a senior manager of accounting and was responsible for all aspects of SEC external financial reporting. Prior to his current position, he held various leadership positions with increasing responsibility including director of accounting, vice president of accounting and senior vice president and corporate controller. Before joining DISH, he was an auditor at Arthur Anderson.
