Heading the team are Eric Waldon and Andrew Pitcairn.

With the rapid growth of web mapping services, GlobeXplorer has announced the formation of a new sales team focused on vertical market integration.

Joining the team as senior director of sales and channel development is Eric Waldman, who will head up GlobeXplorer's growth plans in the mapping/AEC market, the federal government and visualization/simulation sectors. Waldman brings 19 years of sales, management, and business development experience in the spatial industry to GlobeXplorer. His background includes extensive work in the aerial imagery, simulation and civil engineering arenas.

Waldman's hiring comes on the heels of Andrew Pitcairn's recent move into the GlobeXplorer team as head of business development and strategic sales. Pitcairn brings 25 years of experience in the spatial industry, having worked in senior roles for Etak (now TeleAtlas), Trimble and AOL's MapQuest. He has been focusing on developing GlobeXplorer's relationships in the real estate, insurance, GIS and location-based services sectors.
