(Philadelphia, PA) David Pheasant has been promoted to Director of Technology and Development Operations for GeoDecisions, an information technology (IT) company specializing in geospatial solutions. Based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Pheasant has nearly 10 years of experience in technical development operations and life cycle and system technologies.
