EXÉCUTIF

Brian Davies, Président

Brian Davies is presently Director of Geomatics for a large multinational geophysical company. He has been involved in Geomatics since 1976 where he began his career in the Geophysical Industry as a Surveyor working all over Canada. Over the years he has worked in various Geomatics Disciplines such as Geophysics, Mining, Cadastral, GPS Networking, Hydrographic Surveys, and Photogrammetry as well as a Land Surveyor and in British Columbia.

For the past twenty five years he has worked in various countries around the world as a Country Operations and Survey Manager supervising large Geophysical projects on land and shallow water marine operations. During his time in South America he worked in most of the countries and especially the Amazon in Ecuador and Brasil and in the Andes Mountains and Amazon rivers. These areas presented many technical issues for surveyors however he enjoyed the challenge of providing accuracy in a jungle environment using GPS control and Total Station traversing for hundreds of kilometres. Brian completed several Hydrographic surveys in Brasil used for mapping coastal areas for navigating large drilling rigs as close to land as possible.

As a Regional Manager for East Africa for a couple of years he lived in Dar Es Salaam in Tanzania and supervised geophysical land and marine projects in the region. Following his tenure in Africa he moved to the United Arab Emirates where he managed a project on the Oman border which was the first shallow water marine and land seismic project in the Emirate of Ras al Khaimah. After spending time in the region visiting other countries such as Yemen, Oman and Qatar where he was marketing and scouting future geophysical projects.

After spending over a year in the Middle East he was relocated to Singapore where he worked in the far east region and spend 2 years in Bangladesh as a Country Manager looking after projects for large multinational organizations such as Chevron amongst others. In between projects in Bangladesh he completed a shallow water marine project in Suriname in South America.

But closer to home and Geomatics as it relates to Canada. Brian works in the lower mainland of British Columbia in Maple Ridge where he has lived for many years. As a Certified Technician and Registered Site Improvement Surveyor, registered with Applied Science Technologists and Technicians of British Columbia (ASTTBC), he has been a member since the late eighties. During his years in British Columbia he has partnered with BCLS surveyors provided many types of surveys in the Lower Mainland and Coastal regions.

Brian thoroughly enjoys Geomatics and all the diverse areas and regions and the variety of projects it presents. He has chosen Geomatics for its challenges and the satisfaction of working outdoors and with leading edge technologies. Over the years he has mentored many people in various areas of Geomatics who have since gone on to remain in the Geomatics Industry.
