WALNUT CREEK, CALIF. (Feb. 12, 2004) - With the rapid growth of Web mapping services, GlobeXplorer has announced the formation of a new sales team focused on vertical market integration. This group of leading industry veterans is a key part of GlobeXplorer's plan to lead the aerial and satellite imagery business into its next phase of online Web services.
Joining the team as Senior Director of Sales and Channel Development is Eric Waldman, who will head up GlobeXplorer's growth plans in the mapping/AEC market, the federal government and visualization/simulation sectors. Waldman brings 19 years of sales, management, and business development experience in the spatial industry to GlobeXplorer. His background includes extensive work in the aerial imagery, simulation and civil engineering arenas. He most recently served as head of Sales for GIS Express and before that, worked with EarthScan Network and Space Imaging.
Waldman was recently honored as DigitalGlobe's 2003 Reseller of the Year and Quick Bird Representative of the Year and is looking forward to leveraging the size and power of GlobeXplorer's imagery technology. "Joining GlobeXplorer allows me to tap into the largest online database available in the industry today," he said, "and provides state of the art, Web-based delivery systems that can better meet my clients' growing image requirements."
Waldman's hiring comes on the heels of Andrew Pitcairn's recent move into the GlobeXplorer team as head of Business Development and Strategic Sales. Pitcairn brings 25 years of experience in the spatial industry, having worked in senior roles for the likes of Etak (now TeleAtlas), Trimble and AOL's MapQuest. He has been focusing on developing GlobeXplorer's relationships in the real estate, insurance, GIS, and location-based services sectors.
"Eric and Andrew are proven performers anchoring a team that is second to none in the spatial information business," said COO Paul Smith. "With the support of our inside sales team, we hope to continue strong revenue growth in 2004."
