Richard Leadbeater

Global Solutions Manager, State/Provincial Government Industry



Mr. Leadbeater has over 35 years working with Spatial Analysis (GIS) both in the private sector, with a large public water and wastewater utility, and since 1997 with Esri, the leading developer of GIS Software.

Mr. Leadbeater is responsible for coordinating customer out-reach, identification of solution needs and development, and serves as lead advocate for Esri’s clients in the state / provincial sector.  His focus is on the development of tools and solutions addressing government administrative functions with attention towards the use of GIS in the support of policy development, elections, redistricting, and government operation processes.

My goal is to move the application of location and geographic analysis further, from its present use by technology professionals, into the conversations that define government policy and its operations. The data governments generate must be thought of as a resource, a valued stockpile, that wants exploitation.
