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
New President for Fugro EarthData Inc.
