Pat McConnell – President, ClearSkies Geomatics
For over 30 years, Patrick has built his career as a leader in geomatics and remote sensing, and has been personally involved in several company sales, mergers, and acquisitions. As a Vice President of Sales at Atlantis Scientific, Patrick managed software sales and established relationships with high-level government officials at the European Space Agency (ESA), the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) and the Japanese National Space Agency (NASDA).
Patrick became the President and Owner of Atlantis in 1996, restructuring the organization and re-focused the company’s direction to become a radar remote sensing software company. Over his five years, Patrick managed significant growth in revenue and negotiated the sale/merger and acquisition of Atlantis to Vexcel Corporation of Boulder Colorado. Pat was retained as President after the successful divestiture of the company to Vexcel Corporation.
In 2006, Vexcel Imaging was acquired by Microsoft Corporation, and Patrick relocated to Boulder, Colorado. Patrick brought his sales relationships and talent to manage Microsoft’s UltraCam sales in Canada, the US and Japan.
Patrick founded Intrepid Geomatics Inc. in 2011 and then rebranded to ClearSkies Geomatics Inc. in 2013 to broker new and used aerial survey equipment with a focus on the America’s. Patrick’s success is evidence of his strong relationships throughout the remote sensing industry with manufacturers and aerial survey businesses. His recent acquisition of the AERIALSURVEY.com brand and the establishment of a new business and office in Ireland (BlueBird Geo Ltd.) expands his brokerage presence throughout the EU, Asia and Africa.
