Vice President of Business Development
Carl Livingood brings over 30 years of engineering and business experience to GeoSpatial Innovations, Inc. Carl’s passion for combining GPS and GIS technologies with intuitive software enables utilities to dramatically boost field worker productivity and speed informed, in-the-field decisions. He uses an engineering methodology to assess and break down problems into manageable pieces, and helps communicate these ideas to stakeholders. Carl feels one of the most rewarding parts of his work is meeting and getting to know people, helping them with their problems, and seeing them succeed.
Carl also comes with a lineage of innovation as his grandfather, Jesse F. Livingood, an inventor and garage tinkerer, patented a wheel attachment for a front-wheel drive motor vehicle in 1930, in addition to steam engines and home heating systems. Before founding GSI, Carl served as a Planning Engineer and GIS Project Manager for Allegheny Power and as a Product Manager and Senior GIS Consultant for Cook-Hurlbert, Inc. of Austin, Texas. He earned his BS in Electrical Engineering from Penn State University and is a registered Professional Electrical Engineer in Pennsylvania.
Outside of GSI, Carl enjoys following the Pittsburgh Steelers, Penguins, and Pirates and also contributes to Muscular Dystrophy Association and other charitable organizations. He lives in western Pennsylvania with his wife Lisa and two children, Tyler and Lexi.
