DigitalGlobe has hired Ray Summerell as its new director of customer solutions out of DigitalGlobe's Washington D.C. office.

DigitalGlobe, provider of high resolution commercial satellite imagery and geospatial information products, has hired Ray Summerell as its new director of customer solutions out of DigitalGlobe's Washington D.C. office. In this role, Summerell will leverage the company's current market position to create new business opportunities and support existing market segments. Specifically, Summerell will address customer relationships, product evolution, partnerships and new business opportunities surrounding the company's work with U.S. federal civilian agencies, lands, real estate, facilities and infrastructure, as well as state and local governments.

Summerell is a spatial information solutions industry veteran who pioneered the use of digital mapping for use in military installation planning and management, created a series of flood data mapping products for the Federal Emergency Management Agency, and created the first set of mapping and GIS standards for facilities, infrastructure and environment, which make up the basis for the current federal CAD/GIS Technology Center for Facilities, Infrastructure and Environment (CTCFIE) spatial data standards.

Summerell joins DigitalGlobe after having founded and led EIPCI, a professional services practice in thought leadership for facilities and spatial information solutions in the federal sector. Summerell has also worked as the vice president of corporate development at Facility Information Systems and played a senior role at Dewberry & Davis, where he managed all mapping and GIS services and created both the federal facilities and DOD environmental business lines. Summerell has also held positions with the U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Burk and Associates. He is a frequently requested speaker regarding spatial data and facilities management best practices. Summerell received his graduate education in Engineering Management and Planning from the University of New Orleans and Old Dominion University, and his bachelor's degree from Virginia Tech.
