The Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians (MBCI) has named Allen Hines as its new President of Choctaw Geo Imaging (CGI), and Tom Lenzen as President of the newly launched corporation, Applied Geo Technologies (AGT). The appointments follow an aggressive period of growth for CGI, since opening its national geospatial and image-processing centre last November.
Allen Hines was promoted internally from the Director of Operations position. Hines joined CGI in November 2001, following senior business development posts at LAND INFO International and ISSI Consulting / Spatial Technologies. CGI’s former President, Tom Lenzen, vacated the position to launch a new-chartered corporation, AGT.
AGT provides comprehensive professional engineering services to the U.S. Federal Government, in both Department of Defence and non-defence capacities. Choctaw Geo Imaging is the sole shareholder for AGT, which is designated as a Native American Small Disadvantaged Owned Business. Lenzen brings over 20 years of strategic planning, data production, and marketing experience with the Defence Mapping Agency Aerospace Centre (now known as NIMA), TruVue, TRIFID and Plangraphics.
