AllSource Analysis creates board of directors

LONGMONT — AllSource Analysis Inc. in Longmont has created a board of directors to guide the new company that analyzes images taken from satellites for customers in the financial markets, government and energy sectors.

Outside directors Peter Behrendt, Robert Bunting, Ryan Carr, Richard Herring and John Metzger join founding executives — chief executive and chairman Stephen Wood, chief analytics officer Joseph Bermudez Jr. and chief marketing officer Charles Herring on the board. The founders are all former employees of Longmont-based DigitalGlobe Inc., which provides satellite images.

Behrendt had a 26-year career at IBM before joining data-storage firm Exabyte to become its CEO and chairman.

Bunting, a scientist, educator and serial entrepreneur, co-founded the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research Foundation and started the National Center for Atmospheric Research’s commercialization program. He is known for creating winning business plans, including Space Imaging and DigitalGlobe.

Carr was a founder and chief investment officer at Sparta Asset Management, a small-cap investment firm with some of the nation’s largest pension funds as clients.

Richard Herring served as a senior executive at Ball Aerospace & Technologies in positions including CIO and president of the Space Systems Division. After 27 years with Ball, he became CEO of EarthWatch, which later was renamed DigitalGlobe.

Metzger, a former journalist, became one of the first trade editors in geographic information systems. He later established one of the nation’s first high-tech public and investor relations firms, now Metzger Albee in Boulder.
