DigitalGlobe has appointed Jill Smith to the position of president and CEO. Smith comes to DigitalGlobe with a wealth of experience leading commercial technology companies in the Internet, software and electronic publishing markets. Herb Satterlee will continue in his role as chairman of DigitalGlobe.

 

Smith was previously president and CEO of eDial, a collaboration software company that Smith successfully repositioned and grew, culminating in eDial’s acquisition by Alcatel. Before that, she was COO of Micron Electronics Inc., a $1.5 billion direct PC manufacturer and marketer. While at Micron, Smith drove the PC business to profitability, and grew HostPro, Micron’s award-winning Web hosting division, into the third-largest Web and application hosting company and a candidate for an IPO. Additionally, Smith co-founded and led Treacy & Company, LLC, a boutique consulting and investment business, and was CEO of SRDS, L.P., a private publishing and printing company that she successfully established as an electronic publishing leader.

 

Smith’s earlier professional experience includes executive positions at Sara Lee Corporation and the role of vice president at Bain & Company. She earned a master’s degree in business administration from the MIT Sloan School of Management.

 

In Satterlee’s continued role as company chairman, he will be working with DigitalGlobe’s defense and intelligence business unit, managing government relations around the world.
