Amanda Brownfield CEO Geospark Analytics

Amanda Brownfield Named Geospark Analytics CEO, Omar Balkinssoon Becomes Exec Chairman

Amanda Brownfield, most recently president of Geospark Analytics, took the helm at the company as CEO and succeeded Omar Balkissoon

Geospark said Thursday Balkissoon, a past Wash100 awardee, transitioned to new roles as executive chairman of its board of directors and a strategic adviser to the Herndon, Virginia-based geospatial data analytics company.

“I’m at my best when I’m inspiring new ideas and pushing the technological envelope. Transitioning from start-up to scale-up requires a hardened set of skills, and Amanda has that in spades,” he said.

“This move comes at a natural time for me as I also look to support other emerging tech founders, developing the next generation of imaginative minds as part of Georgia Tech’s CREATE-X program.”

Brownfield joined Geospark in March from Engility where she worked as a senior vice president and as board chairman of Forfeiture Support Associates, formerly an Engility-AECOM joint venture and now jointly owned by Science Applications International Corp (NYSE: SAIC) Amentum.
