Diego Portillo

Please accept my nomination to the GISCO Board.

I have over 20 years’ experience in the GIS field. I started as an entry-level GIS Technician creating and editing coverages in ArcInfo Workstation, making maps using ArcView 3.0, and continue gaining experience as an analyst, developer, and consultant. As a result, I have implemented and managed GIS teams and Enterprise systems in different organizations. I spend my last seven years in the water utility industry (at Denver Water) and ten years prior in the electric utility industry (at United Power). I am also proud to be an adjunct faculty for DU (for winter quarter 2021) and EUCI, teaching several GIS courses.

Because of my experience from the ground up, and wide-ranging experiences successfully implementing complex enterprise GIS solutions at telecom, electric utility, and water utility organizations, I bring a hands-on approach to the spatial industry. How to resolve the actual issues when working on any GIS project, what are the different approaches, how to implement it, and how to integrate them on the overall enterprise vision.
