Woolpert LLP mourns the tragic loss of (Forrest) Steve DeMartino, killed in an airplane crash on January 8, 2003, in Charlotte, N.C. He was traveling to the Greenville-Spartanburg Airport on company business when his plane crashed shortly after takeoff.
DeMartino managed the application development and project management groups for Woolpert’s geographic information services division. He used a team development philosophy that emphasized staff improvement, a dynamic problem-solving process and effective communication among production groups.
In DeMartino’s three and one-half years at Woolpert, he helped design multiple geographic information system projects, coordinate business process reengineering exercises and develop web-based application interfaces. DeMartino published several technology-based articles, and prior to joining Woolpert, he directed a beta test site for digital mapping scanners.
