Liverpool, UK – Mike Cooper has joined the management team at MGISS, a specialist in the use of geospatial technology in the utility, infrastructure and environment sectors. Joining from Leica Geosystems, Cooper brings more than forty years’ experience in the geographic industry holding key roles with Esri and Ordnance Survey. Cooper joins MGISS in the role of strategic advisor where he will help shape the company’s future as it continues the transition from a start-up tech disruptor.

“We are delighted to welcome Mike to the team and are excited by the experience and skill set he brings,” commented Mike Darracott Managing Director and founder of MGISS. “However it’s not just ‘been there done that’, Mike really understands the markets in which we operate, the technology we are developing and perhaps most importantly the challenges our customers are facing.”

“MGISS has vision and capability and understands the transformation that is taking place as geotechnology evolves to support the emerging needs of organisations with responsibility for the national infrastructure,” added Mike Cooper, newly appointment Strategic Advisor at MGISS. “I am delighted to be part of the team and part of the journey.”

Cooper started his geospatial career at Ordnance Survey where, during his twenty year plus service, he rose to a senior management position before being headhunted by Esri UK to spearhead a new commercial business division. As Head of Business Solutions, Cooper built a growing, profitable and sustainable multi-million pound business from a standing start, positioning Esri as market leader within UK commercial sector.
