Tim Farrier, formerly of New Zealand Aerial Mapping (NZAM), will lead the Hawke’s Bay team as General Manager. Tim is joined by Dave Froggatt and Lorraine Claydon, also formerly of NZAM, to create a formidable team with an unmatched background and knowledge of the New Zealand aerial survey environment. “AAM New Zealand will be totally focussed on building the right solutions for New Zealand with the right mix of technology and local experience” Farrier said.
AAM NZ will use dedicated, state of the art, aircraft, LiDAR and aerial imaging technology located in Hawke’s Bay and will be supported by the world class scale and capacity of the greater AAM group. AAM NZ will also look to bring AAM’s impressive suite of geosolutions to the unique New Zealand geospatial landscape.
“It is clearly an exciting development for us” said AAM CEO, Mark Freeburn. “Tim, David and Lorraine bring a world class skill set to the local AAM NZ office. They are well respected and admired and while we would love to use their skills in all parts of AAM we know that for the time being their hearts and minds are set on the task of rebuilding the New Zealand aerial survey capability through AAM NZ.” Freeburn concluded.
AAM is the region’s largest geospatial services company, providing client-focused solutions to industries such as mining and minerals, oil and gas, construction, infrastructure and utilities, forestry, and government. The company provides geospatial services and technology to the Australasian, African and Asian markets with a workforce of almost 500 people. For more information: www.aamgroup.com
