New Cartifact CEO

Cartifact, the company behind MapQuests and Yahoo’s recent style updates (APB posts 1, 2), got a new CEO.  J. Fred Baca was President of Colliers International in Houston, Texas (2001 - 2009), a brokerage house. But he was in geo before that: “In the 1990s Mr. Baca, as Baca Landata, a co venture with Houston based Stewart Title Company, purchased both the Wilson Maps and Zingerey Map Company, making Baca the sole provider of Houston parcel and ownership mapping services. Baca Landata developed the first Internet “smart” map of The Greater Houston Area and the first Internet distributed GIS mapping product for the Harris County Appraisal District.”
