Sanborn CEO John Copple announced the promotion of Jay Tilley to senior vice president and general manager of Sanborn's Colorado Springs office. Tilley, who most recently served as Sanborn's executive vice president of Programs and Products, is now responsible for the business and technical operations of the company's Colorado Springs office. In his new position, Tilley will focus on the management and growth of the company's core mapping business; this includes leveraging digital camera, lidar, film and satellite imagery sources for various precision imagery and vector products.
Tilley joined Sanborn in 2004 from Denver-based RESOURCE21, where he was a vice president of that company's commercial and civil divisions. Prior to that, he served as vice president of Technology at Colorado Springs-based Analytical Surveys, Inc., a company Sanborn later acquired. Additionally, Tilley has held senior positions at Booz Allen Hamilton, EarthWatch, Inc. (now DigitalGlobe, Inc.), Ball Aerospace Corporation and the Air Force Phillips Laboratory/Space Division.
