Delair, a provider of visual data management solutions for enterprises, has appointed Baptiste Tripard its vice president of global business development.
Tripard was most recently director of strategy and business development at Intel’s drone group. At Delair, he will focus on the company’s further expansion into the enterprise market.
Tripard has built a career in aviation, starting as a jet engine designer. He later joined drone supplier senseFly, part of Parrot, where he was instrumental in expanding the company’s presence into North America. In 2016, Baptiste joined Intel and became general manager of Intel Insight, leading the development and go-to-market strategy for the company’s data management and analytics platform. Tripard also previously served on the board of the Small UAV Coalition.
“Through his deep knowledge of how geospatial technologies are evolving, Baptiste brings a keen understanding of the way enterprises can better utilize visual data from a wide range of sources to gain more insightful business analysis and optimize their operations. He has the experience and expertise to help our customers grow their visual data strategy,” says Michael de Lagarde, CEO of Delair.
“The delair.ai platform is establishing a new standard for how visual data can be managed in the cloud at the enterprise level, and making aerial intelligence a more accessible option for all types of companies,” says Tripard. “Delair’s rich history of innovation with drones and data solutions, combined with its open-ecosystem philosophy and strong data science expertise, make it well-positioned to push the boundaries of the geospatial industry and create a new era where automated visual data analysis becomes very common in any business, thanks to cloud technology.”
