Don Weigel Joins Micello Advisory Board

June 5, 2012

We couldn't be happier to announce Don Weigel joining the Micello Advisory Board. Don is sharing his expertise on sales, marketing and product strategy with the Micello team. Don has been in the Geo technologies industry for over 20 years.  

Most recently Don was with deCarta as head of product management and corporate development where he led teams that built, and democratized the availability of location-based services. His team targeted developers, OEMs and mobile network operators providing alternatives to Google and Bing that enabled customers to control their own value chain with maps APIs, navigation, and local search.  Prior to joining deCarta, Don led solutions development and business development for Autodesk's geospatial division.  His team’s initiatives contributed to the company's record growth and leadership position in the telco/utilities/government geospatial markets.  He developed the product vision and strategy to merge geographic information system (GIS) and computer aided design (CAD) paradigms to create a new class of “GeoDesign” tools for building owners, civil engineers, urban planners, and utility designers.  At Trimble, Don started the Mobile Solutions Division and led product management and marketing. His teams built a SaaS and wireless services platform combining telemetry, “big data” analytics, embedded mobile hardware, and apps for location-based services, telematics, and mobile resource management to improve the way enterprises and OEMs manage their mobile workforces and provide services.  At ESRI Don held various executive positions during an 11-year span in which the company grew ten-fold to become the world's 4th largest privately held software company. He and his teams designed and developed apps and technologies that changed the way governments and enterprises gather and utilize spatial data for decision-making.  Prior to ESRI he was a GIS programmer/analyst.  He attended Cornell University where he focused on regional science and GIS.
 
We are so excited to have Don Weigel joining the Micello Advisory Board.  Don's experience and trusted leadership will shed new light on location based services as well as drive Micello's main focus- making really useful and accurate maps of your favorite places.
