A Fresh Perspective
Hello! Ricardo Duarte, GeoDecisions’ marketing manager here, welcoming you to the new GeoDecisions.com! We’ve been working hard to align our site with exciting business and technology initiatives, while providing fresh perspectives on a variety of topics, from maps, use cases, and conference experiences to partnership and community involvement stories. Please take a few minutes to surf around and let us know what you think. Our team is always on the lookout for fresh ideas.
A native of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, I’ve spent the majority of my career with GeoDecisions and our parent company, Gannett Fleming. Through the years, my roles have included proposal development; public relations; communications; digital, print, and event marketing; and overall brand ambassador. Constantly learning something new, I’m involved with the American Marketing Association and the Society for Marketing Professional Services.
While wearing multiple marketing hats, I serve as a liaison between diverse clients; partners; GIS analysts and developers; designers and sales staff; government agencies; and publishers and printers. Our common goal is collaboration, creativity, and innovative problem solving that leads to high-quality products.
I help oversee development of presentations, brochures, qualification packages, news and project information, publicity, advertisements, websites, and social media content. In addition to delivering marketing communication strategy and resource presentations, I enjoy presenting engineering and geospatial concepts that help educate elementary, middle, and high school students. I also support our company’s college recruitment efforts.
In recent years, I’ve had amazing opportunities to volunteer in my community. Whether coaching youth sports through local YMCAs or reading to elementary students as part of the American Literacy Corporation’s 500 Men Reading program, I’m re-invigorated from the boundless energy of students excited to learn!
My wife, Lori, are active and hands-on parents of four amazing kids (Jake, Jordan, Jeremy, and Jamie). In addition to the letter “J,” I enjoy running, playing soccer, ocean kayaking, and weightlifting.
