Brook, a globally recognized infrastructure and utility industry veteran, will serve as team lead GeoUnderground, Geospatial’s proprietary cloud-based GIS software. Brook is a former senior director – Gas Infrastructure for Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) and he served as the Global Pipeline and Gas Utilities Industry Manager for ESRI, the GIS software industry leader.

“While infrastructure operators have many competing objectives, safety and service delivery are the most important,” says Brook. “For many reasons you can’t achieve these without knowing the accurate location of your assets. The technology combination offered by Geospatial Corporation gives organizations the best possible way of defining and exposing location. I am excited about how we are going to make operators safe and successful.”
Brook will be based in Walnut Creek, California providing access to Silicon Valley. With Geospatial, being a Google Cloud Partner, this places Brook in close proximity to interact with and manage the company’s Google Partnership. In addition, Brook will be responsible for all aspects of our Infrastructure management solutions including future product development and integration with clients, lead new marketing and strategic initiatives such as our Smart Cities Infrastructure Solutions and manage Geospatial’s IGAPP Program.
