Cityworks, the leading provider of GIS-centric management solutions, announced today the recent appointment of Phil Mogavero as International Business Development Manager. With Cityworks’ continued growth around the world, Mr. Mogavero will help develop and cultivate Cityworks opportunities with worldwide distribution partners.

On October 1, 2011, Mr. Mogavero assumed his new position as International Business Development Manager. A seasoned Cityworks veteran, Mogavero has been the Senior Regional Account Manager over the Northeastern U.S. region since January 2006. Based in Buffalo, New York, Mogavero transitioned to his new position which includes developing international distributors and opportunities outside the U.S. and playing an active role in promoting Cityworks around the globe.

“This represents an exciting opportunity for Cityworks,” said Phil Mogavero, International Business Development Manager, Cityworks. “Though I have thoroughly enjoyed working in the Northeast, I’m looking forward to the challenges of doing business in various places around the world. With today’s Internet technologies, I can be in Europe in the morning and the Pacific Rim that afternoon! At the same time, we know that meeting people face-to-face and a handshake are what seals business relationships.”

In November Mogavero will attend the 2011 Esri Middle East and Africa User Conference (MEAUC) in Beirut, Lebanon. While in Beirut, Mogavero will be working closely InfoGraph, the primary Cityworks software distributor in the Middle East and official distributor of Esri products in Jordan, demonstrating Cityworks products in their booth and addressing questions from potential customers.

“Though we’ve had an international presence for several years,” state Tom Palizzi, Executive Director of Sales and Marketing, Cityworks, “the time has come to elevate our commitment to supporting international opportunities. Working closely with Esri, we will continue to develop our international alliance network. Phil takes with him a solid knowledge base of Cityworks and solid business sense, combined with years of experience in asset management and utilities.”
