Craig Gooding

Business Development Strategist

Fort Collins, CO

I put my 35 years of experience in business development and geospatial services to to work as I bring Ayres' aerial mapping and survey services to new clients in the West and around the nation. I also enjoy helping our existing clients to take advantage of Ayres' expertise across multiple disciplines. I help clients save time, money, and contracting effort by taking advantage of our wide range of services to address needs from planning and environmental remediation to mapping, site design, transportation, and river engineering.

I understand the purchasing processes and the geospatial and business needs of state departments of transportation, federal agencies, local governments, and commercial clients. I excel at securing and managing master contracts that serve clients efficiently. My experience as a rod-and-chain man, a courthouse researcher, and later a project manager on land information and aerial/mobile mapping projects gives me the perspective to expertly advise clients on the benefits of tailored solutions and deliverables.

My specializations include:

  • Oil and gas mapping
  • Land information
  • Scanning and digitizing services
  • Mobile mapping
  • Commercial mapping databases
  • GPS electronics
  • Mobile routing and navigation applications
  • BS (Honors), Forestry, Michigan Technological University
