PlaceSpeak is happy to announce that Alex Diamantopoulos has joined our team as an Account Executive.
Alex is s geographer with over 25 years of experience in the geomatics realm as both an analyst and a sales/business development professional. Alex started out as a mapping analyst for a Hydrogeology firm then founded his own consultancy/contracting firm to help spearhead various government organizations, engineering and planning firms leverage geographic information systems (GIS) and related technologies into their operations.
With the inception of web-Based mapping technologies Alex joined TELUS’ Geomatics Division where he successfully created beachheads for an innovative hosted/managed mapping offering in eastern Canada targeting municipalities, provincial and federal organizations along with the private sector.
Alex resides in Ottawa Ontario, has two daughters and enjoys being in the natural outdoors. When not working, he can be found on some body of water with one of his water vessels, or cruising down some ski hill.
Alex is excited to join the PlaceSpeak team as he feels that his personal concerns around the declining trend of public participation in the democratic processes in local and provincial affairs can be addressed with the platform. Alex sees PlaceSpeak as a practical tool to accommodate the time stressed citizens to stay current in their domestic political affairs at their convenience. According to Alex:
Knowing that the PlaceSpeak solution offers participants the security they would want in an online consultation platform should ease their minds and encourage a meaningful dialog with their neighbouring citizens. In turn, the platform will generate the quality feedback that proponents are seeking.
