Each year, Mainebiz recognizes a small group of individuals who are making a significant impact in their industry and contributing to Maine’s economy. Cunningham has been at the helm of Blue Marble Geographics, a GIS and mapping software company, since 2004. From its headquarters in Hallowell, Cunningham has led the company through acquisitions, strategic changes, and significant growth during the past two decades.
This year, Blue Marble Geographics opened a second office in Brunswick, investing in research and development driven by a focus on 3D mapping tools. The company plans to increase the workforce from 40 to 75, mostly in research and development.
“It is an honor to be recognized on an individual level, but Blue Marble’s success is very much a team effort,” stated Cunningham. “We have an excellent management team, industry-leading software developers, and dedicated support staff, all of whom have contributed to our growth and success. I think the difference maker is that we truly enjoy what we do and are humbled by our loyal customer base.”
Blue Marble Geographics was named one of the Best Places to Work in Maine this year. The Best Places to Work in Maine program identifies, recognizes, and honors the best employment places in Maine, benefiting the state’s economy, workforce, and businesses.
Cunningham will be recognized in a live virtual event on Monday, November 16. To learn more about the award reception and to request a ticket, visit Mainebiz.
