Landmark appoints Alex Wrottesley as Managing Director of Environment and Mapping division
Landmark Information Group, the leading provider of information to the property market and part of Daily Mail and General Trust plc (DMGT), has appointed Alex Wrottesley as Managing Director of Landmark Information’s Environment and Mapping division, which includes the market leading products Promap and Envirocheck.
Alex has spent his career building and running media and technology businesses, and his most recent position was Head of Geovation, which is a location data-lab backed by Ordnance Survey and HM Land Registry that identifies and supports new start-up businesses that use location and property data.
Prior to Geovation, Alex's professional journey started by building a trade media business, which was sold to the LSE-listed exhibitions business Hyve in 2002. He later founded Near Global, an interactive technology studio that built accurate, immersive experiences of real-world places from survey data, plans and BIM models.
Alex will join Landmark Information in July and is responsible for delivering the business growth strategy for the Environment and Mapping division, and will be working closely with the sales, marketing and software engineering functions to further evolve existing solutions.
Commenting on his appointment, Alex Wrottesley said, “Geospatial data lies at the heart of the most important decisions we make - in business, government and in our daily lives. Its effective use will be critical as we recover from the current pandemic and in our design of carbon-neutral strategies to address the climate crisis. Landmark is recognised for delivering market-leading products that are used, every day, by land and property professionals across multiple sectors to access location-based intelligence, mapping and environmental data. I’m delighted to join the team to help evolve and develop these products to meet the needs of customers and partners, today and in the future.”
Simon Brown, CEO of Landmark Information Group, said: “Alex is a great fit for Landmark’s Environment and Mapping business – his combined experience of identifying business growth opportunities involving innovative technology, geospatial and digital media will greatly complement our business. We are delighted to welcome Alex to the team.”
