Woolpert mourns loss of GIS group manager Demartino

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.
