DENVER, April 24, 2014 - Intermap Technologies (TSX:IMP), (BB:ITMSF), a leading provider of geospatial solutions on-demand created from its uniform, high-resolution 3D digital models of the earth's surface, today announced the addition of software and technology sales veteran Jon Freeman to its senior management team as the Vice President of Sales. Mr. Freeman brings twenty years of consistent sales production and executive management experience to the position along with a successful record for business development in a variety of software/high-tech industries. In his new role at Intermap, Mr. Freeman will be responsible for managing the Company's worldwide sales team while also leading the expansion of its Orion Platform™ business into new territories, channels and vertical markets.

“As more and more commercial enterprises and governments turn to software solutions to help them address their location-based problems, we realized that we needed an experienced software sales executive to lead our sales efforts around the world,” said Todd Oseth, President and CEO of Intermap. “Jon’s extensive experience and expertise as a top sales leader working for progressive software companies will be invaluable to us as we continue to expand our customer base and seek out geospatial solutions opportunities in new regions, channels and industries around the world.” 

Mr. Freeman most recently served as Vice President Sales for Solarwinds/Confio Software Inc. a leading provider of software solutions delivering database, server, storage, and networking tools. During his tenure he delivered consistent year-over-year growth in new business revenue, delivered record quarterly sales, and drove new efficient and successful organizational structures. Prior to that, Mr. Freeman served as area vice president for Xirrus, Inc., a global manufacturer and provider of innovative Wi-Fi products and services. During his nearly seven-year tenure with Xirrus, Mr. Freeman was responsible for helping to build the company's OEM program and expand sales efforts, ultimately increasing the company's top-line growth by 300% while managing a team of regional managers and engineers. Prior to joining Xirrus, Mr. Freeman was a director of sales at Intel Corp.

“Intermap is a thought leader in providing complete geospatial solutions to its customers. They are one of the first companies to recognize that delivering raw data is not as important as what you do with that data. Their complete Orion Platform based solutions approach to selling, which includes powerful analytics based software applications, sets them apart in the geospatial market place. That type of innovative and customer-centric thinking – backed by a team of experienced software developers and engineers – will ultimately make Intermap the leader in the industry. I look forward to joining Intermap’s executive team and helping the Company to exceed their growth projections," said Mr. Freeman.

DENVER – (TSX:IMP) Intermap Technologies reported today that it has completed the organizational restructuring efforts that began in 2010 with an additional 30% reduction in headcount in the Company’s North American and European offices.

Severance costs of approximately $1.0 million will be paid out on a payroll-by-payroll basis over an extended period of time throughout 2011. 

“The further restructuring of the Company’s employee base was a necessary step to move the Company to future profitability,” said Todd Oseth, Intermap’s president and CEO. “From this position of lowered expense levels and as revenues increase during 2011, our operating objective is to reach positive EBITDA and cash flow as rapidly as possible.
