Measure, a 32 Advisors Company, has added to its Drone as a Service team with Gregory McNeal and Cheryl Ginyard-Jones as senior advisors and has created a new series of members-only forums on drone technology and policy.
Measure provides turnkey solutions using aerial technologies to deliver specific, low-risk and cost-effective actionable data to clients. It was founded specifically to help clients avoid the capital expense and operating risks of establishing their own drone programs and to purchase drone support in a way that better fits their operations and cost profiles.
Gregory McNeal, J.D. Ph.D., will collaborate with Measure as senior advisor for policy and technology. He is an associate professor of law and public policy at Pepperdine University; has written extensively on drones, including for Forbes; has testified before Congress about the legal and policy issues associated with drones; and serves as a voting member of the ASTM technical committee, creating scientific standards to govern drones and their operation.
Beginning in March, McNeal will host members-only forums on topics ranging from drone regulations to unique applications of drones in industries such as precision agriculture, oil and gas, and disaster relief.
As Measure's new senior advisor for energy, Cheryl Ginyard-Jones brings extensive experience in oil and gas, petrochemicals, and communications technology. She will head Measure's energy sector business development, working with clients in tasks ranging from transmission line monitoring to flare stack inspection. Ginyard-Jones spent over a decade at BP, where she led finance, strategy and business planning activities.
