Geoscape Australia (formerly PSMA Australia) bids farewell to CEO Dan Paull after almost 20 years in the role.

The company made the announcement on Monday, paying tribute to the outgoing executive and well-known figure in Australia’s geospatial community.

Chair of the Geoscape Australia’s board, Lynne Robinson, said Dan had made an extraordinary contribution to the company and the geospatial industry.

“We’re immensely grateful to Dan for his wonderful service,” Ms. Robinson said. “No one individual has made a greater contribution to this company. While we’re sad to see him go, we’re delighted for him and wish him well in his future role.”

Mr. Paull presided over the development of the company’s core data products, foundation datasets including the Geocoded National Address File (G-NAF), CadLite and Transport & Topography.

Mr. Paull also championed Geoscape Buildings, a rich continent-scale buildings dataset, and drove establishment of the company’s continuous data processing platform and API services.

A senior leadership transition team will fulfil the responsibilities of the CEO over the coming months, while an executive search process is undertaken. Dan will work with the transition team to ensure a smooth handover of duties, according to the announcement.

“Dan leaves Geoscape Australia in a great position for growth, following several years of transformation in the business,” Ms. Robinson said. “We remain as committed as ever to building The Digital Australia in collaboration with our partners, customers and data providers.”
