Spotlight on the Americas
Founded in 2009 to support growing demand, the Vancouver office, headed by Alex Lumen hosts an expert team of geological database management consultants and administrators from all corners of the globe.
A close-knit network of international offices enables maxgeo to deliver tailored, responsive geological data services to the global mining and exploration industries. When clients in the Western Hemisphere are looking for help managing their data, it’s the maxgeo Americas office in Vancouver that answers
“No matter how brilliant your mind or strategy, if you’re playing a solo game, you’ll always lose out to a team,” says Alex Lumen, the maxgeo Americas Manager.
With an ever-increasing number of satisfied clients across North and South America, it looks as though the plan is succeeding. The Americas office now comprises professionals from as far afield as Canada, Colombia, Russia, Zimbabwe and Ghana, but they have a single focus – delivering better geological data management solutions to exploration and production businesses.
Clients in the Americas are split roughly 50/50 across both continents. Vancouver is an ideal location for a maxgeo office, with plenty of junior mining companies, easy transport links to the rest of the region and some world-class natural landscapes to explore on weekends!
“We are a values-driven organisation. Mutual respect, trust and professionalism are at the core of what we do. We make a serious investment to ensure these principles are embedded in every part of maxgeo Americas,” says Alex.
The maxgeo team recognises that dealing with different cultures across the globe requires an understanding of hierarchies and a respect for existing workflows. The time differences can be challenging, but as maxgeo is a global organisation they are able to ensure client needs are met by the right people at a time that suits.
“It’s all about providing geoscientific data management software and services so clients can make profitable business decisions using data assets they trust, “ Alex says.
