New President for Fugro EarthData Inc.

Edward Saade has been appointed President and Managing Director of Fugro- EarthData, Inc. Taking over for Anne Hale Miglarese, who led the company’s transition from private ownership to its current standing as a member of the international Fugro organization, Mr. Saade will assume responsibility for Fugro EarthData’s traditional mapping, GeoSAR radar mapping, and GIS business lines to ensure a continued commitment to quality, innovation, and customer service.

Along with a background in marine- and land-based geospatial and geophysics applications, Mr. Saade also brings to the company a proven record of leadership within the Fugro organization. His appointment to head Fugro EarthData follows five successful years as president of Fugro Pelagos, a California-based company specializing in hydrographic surveying. During his tenure at Fugro Pelagos, the company doubled in size and expanded its presence within the federal and state government markets.

Citing complementary services such as airborne and bathymetric lidar offered by Fugro EarthData and Pelagos, respectively, Mr. Saade’s presence at the helm of Fugro EarthData will facilitate even greater synergies between the two Fugro companies to the benefit of both domestic and international customers. “Having partnered together on projects for many years, I have long admired Fugro EarthData’s capabilities and staff and was thrilled when the company became part of the Fugro group last year. I am honored to have been selected to lead this team and look forward to furthering the company’s legacy of success.”
