    I'm all about innovation and making it tangible for our customers! As a visionary person, I have taken complex market information and constraints and developed the long term vision for some of the key product lines in Trimble Navigation’s Survey division, the leader in positioning solutions for land surveyors, mapping and geospatial professionals. Some of these solutions, like the Trimble VX Spatial Station and Trimble Access field software, are already in the market and providing customers with more productivity and additional business opportunities. Recognized consistently as a “Pioneering Plant” profile in Belbin’s team role evaluation (, I observe, question, and "think different" by seeing new ways to solve problems or create opportunities. I deliver keynotes at conferences on the future of technologies.
