New York, NY, May 20, 2013 — OpenGeo the world’s leading commercial open source geospatial company, is promoting key team members Juan Marin, Tim Schaub, and Justin Deoliveira to new roles within the company. Marin has been named chief technology officer, OpenGeo CEO Eddie Pickle said in making the announcement, while Schaub and Deoliveira assume Vice President positions in OpenGeo’s industry-leading software development group.
"Juan Marin’s management experience and his breadth of knowledge from software development to professional services to solutions development will greatly benefit OpenGeo in his new leadership role,” said Pickle. Marin, a graduate of the Universidad Politecnica de Madrid, has more than a decade of experience developing geospatial applications in the energy, environmental, defense, telecommunications and retail industries. As an architect, analyst and developer, he has also played a key role in large enterprise efforts that required integration of geospatial capabilities with other IT systems.
Tim Schaub and Justin Deoliveira are taking on new roles reflecting the continued growth of OpenGeo product development, said Pickle. "Tim’s software development expertise and leadership at OpenGeo and in the OpenLayers community are invaluable as he takes on leadership in an increasing array of OpenGeo projects. And, Justin’s leadership role in advancing OpenGeo’s GeoServer work has been crucial to the success of the OpenGeo Suite. Their talents for software development, and also for mentoring and training, continue to be key to the success of OpenGeo products."
Deoliveira joined OpenGeo in (2005) and has been a major contributor to virtually every significant OpenGeo software initiative since that time. He holds a BA in Computer Science from the University of Victoria. Schaub, who joined OpenGeo in (2007), has been developing open source mapping software since 2001. His work has included extensive contributions on the leadership and development of OpenLayers and other front-end mapping software. He has BS degrees in Natural Science and Mathematics from the University of Puget Sound and a MS in Geological Sciences from the University of Washington.
