Dean Capobianco appointed CEO of Geoscape
The Geoscape Australia Board has appointed former Olympian and tech industry veteran, Dean Capobianco, as CEO of Geoscape Australia.
Dean brings fresh eyes to the spatial information industry and deep experience in data and technology innovation.
He is a commercially astute and execution-oriented business leader, who has successfully built, scaled and transformed businesses in Australia and the Asia Pacific region.
Dean is currently a Non-Executive Director of Provider Choice, builder of a digital platform that guides people through the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), and a Senior Adviser to Karlsgate Inc, creator of cryptoidentity – a privacy-by-design data sharing technology.
Dean’s capabilities and leadership style are a very close match to what we were seeking in our new CEO. He’s immensely positive and energetic, with a real knack for bringing out the best in people. We know he’ll have a big impact on our business.
Dean will drive growth at Geoscape and be pivotal to us realising our vision of becoming the de facto standard for national-scale location data in Australia. He joins with a mandate for change through the pursuit of new partnerships, business models and product innovation.
Dean is excited to lead Geoscape into its next phase, and sees that the role we play in helping governments and organisations make critical decisions, transform their businesses and deliver improved products and services as important for the future of all Australians.
As a former World Championship athlete, Dean is also co-founder of an indigenous youth sports program designed to create opportunities for aspiring young talent from indigenous communities.
Dean will spend his first few weeks meeting shareholders, partners and customers.
