GeoVantage Inc. announced the recent appointment of Michael Nappi as their new president and CEO, effective June 1st.

Nappi brings more than 20 years of management experience in the geographic information systems (GIS) industry to the position and will lead the GeoVantage team as they advance their mission to provide precision navigated imagery through cutting-edge technology.

As president and CEO, Nappi will replace William Pevear, GeoVantage's current president and co-founder. Pevear will continue his involvement with GeoVantage as executive vice chairman, driving the strategic direction of the company and focusing on acquisition prospects to expand GeoVantage's presence in the GIS market space.

Nappi most recently served as senior vice president, worldwide sales & business development at Webraska Inc., where he managed the global sales and business development teams in North America, Europe and Asia Pacific.

Prior to Webraska, Nappi was a founding member of MapQuest.com and held the position of vice president and general manager. At MapQuest, Nappi guided the company's growth to over 2,000 customers worldwide, personally establishing relationships with companies such as America Online, Yahoo!, Moore Data and Travelocity while managing the www.mapquest.com consumer site to become the de facto standard for maps & directions on the web. Nappi also played a key role as a member of the executive management team executing the MapQuest IPO in May 1999 and the sale of MapQuest to America Online Inc. in December 1999.

GeoVantage leverages cutting-edge technology to deliver georegistered, orthorectified aerial imagery in full color and near infrared. To meet the unique remote sensing requirements of forestry, agriculture, urban planning and environmental management, GeoVantage custom flies each project. Twenty-two state-of-the-art sensors, composed of integrated GPS, inertial measurement units and 4-band digital cameras, enable rapid response and extensive geographic coverage throughout the U.S., Canada and South Africa.
