Toronto, Canada (PressExposure) July 03, 2008 -- Brian Pike, President of Calgary-based SaaS solutions provider Global Mainframe, announced four new appointments to his management group following the completion of the recent MapFusion acquisition. Joining his elite team are Guy Paterson, David Young, Graeme Boyce and Mark Paterson. Effective immediately, each has been given a Vice President title and will be located at the company's office in Toronto.
"These guys are uniquely talented and very welcomed additions," explains Pike. "We know their expertise and experience will help us grow and succeed. Their combined output will enable us to rapidly introduce and commercialize our Energy Resource Manager, which has now been integrated with a fully functional data-driven mapping engine, to our Oil and Gas clients on an exclusive basis, prior to us tackling the Forestry and Mining sectors."
Guy Paterson, VP GIS Services, previously architected and developed the WAN-based Geographic Information Systems capable of extremely efficient data delivery and location based analysis for MapFusion. He will continue in his expansive role at Global Mainframe to oversee and manage the application development life cycle from initial concept, research and prototype to final product and deliver multiple innovative technology solutions.
David Young, VP Infrastructure Services, formerly Director of Technology at MapFusion, began his career in the automotive sector, where he managed and deployed initial technical web-based ETL, CRM, and Call Centre applications. "This past week David ensured the smooth transition of MapFusion servers," Pike continues, "and is now responsible for mission critical systems and core services required by our company."
Graeme Boyce, VP Marketing and Communications, will consistently position Global Mainframe and its assets by unifying the brand components and aligning key messaging across the company. Upon establishing long-range goals, he will then implement strategies, and coordinate action plans to further reinforce and stimulate sector-specific revenue efforts.
Mark Paterson, VP Client Services, co-founded MapFusion and will provide the required leadership, direction and administration to accomplish the company's strategic objectives. "We are expecting to deliver the quintessence of high quality and flawless services," concludes Pike. "Mark will ensure we provide our users an exceptional experience."
