Welcome Mike and Molly
RapidDeploy welcomes our newest US-based members to the team!
Molly will take on the role of Project Manager and who will be based remotely in the US. Molly has extensive experience coordinating with local government offices to support NG9-1-1 related efforts. She served as a client manager for over 20 government clients in the Mid-Atlantic region. Prior to managing projects, she served as a technical resource to create, edit, and repair address data. She has also spoken at several conferences on the importance of being NG9-1-1 ready, and data editing best practice. Most recently Molly helped government clients identify GIS data needs, software requirements, and set priorities to prepare for NG9-1-1 through facilitated workshops and educational series. She also currently serves as the president of the Virginia Association for Mapping and Land Information Systems.
Mike will be leading the way as our IoT Platform Operations Manager. As an Air Force veteran, Mike has 10 years of professional work with long haul communications and computer networking. After military service and graduating with a degree in information security, he dove back into government work as a contractor administering and engineering computer networks in Virginia and Hawaii. Those efforts led to integration consulting for state and local government in Austin, TX and an introduction to the 9-1-1 space helping design and build an NG-9-1-1 compliant network. Lately he has expanded these skills to include virtualization, network programming, cloud computing, IoT, architecture, and many other interesting technical facets.
