Director of International Engagement Ordnance Survey
John left the British Army to join Ordnance Survey in 2013. His experience spans a range of engineer, geospatial, intelligence and operational roles, including commanding 42 Engineer Regiment (Geographic). He served in Central America, Africa, Balkans, Cyprus, Afghanistan and across the Middle East, developed government policy and strategic direction for geospatial information, and furthered the role of geography on international military and stability operations, disaster relief and London’s Olympics. He now helps maintain Ordnance Survey as a world leading national geospatial agency, contributing to global initiatives such as the new United Nations Integrated Geospatial Information Framework and working with governments to understand the benefits geospatial brings and the means to deliver these. With this international exposure, John is well placed to steer discussion at DGI once again in 2019.
