Peter joins from Trimble where he was Regional Director of Middle East and Africa. During his time with Trimble, Peter produced and implemented growth strategies for international markets that grew Trimble’s business across several regions.
Peter says: "Location data often reveals the simplest answers to many of our world’s most complex questions. I’m thrilled to be joining OSI at this exciting time with the emergence of technologies transforming our world, and how we integrate those into the way we live and do business. Ordnance Survey has an exceptional reputation and OSI is a true pioneer in a world that’s filled with opportunities for discovery."
OS Chief Executive, Nigel Clifford, says: “Peter brings insightful know-how and experience to OSI. His knowledge of commerce and proven track record in international business experience will be invaluable to clients and OSI as we look to build on recent success.”
OSI was launched in 2012 and is now working in countries on four continents. Its most recently completed project was the creation of a geospatial manual for the National Survey Authority of Oman in support of its modernisation.
