Stu Shea, chairman and CEO of the United States Geospatial Intelligence Foundation (USGIF) is stepping down from the non-profit educational foundation focused on innovation that he founded ten years ago. He announced his decision at a quarterly meeting of USGIF’s Board of Directors in early March.

The board appointed USGIF President Keith Masback to replace Shea as the organization’s CEO while Shea will remain with the organization as the Chairman of the USGIF Board of Directors.

Also during the meeting, USGIF Vice President of Operations Aimee McGranahan was named to the newly-created chief operating officer position.

These changes highlight the foundation’s evolution of leadership to where the organization no longer requires both a CEO and president, according to a statement from USGIF.

"These two promotions reflect the respect and confidence the Board of Directors have for both Keith and Aimee, and the leadership success they have achieved for the foundation, its Membership and the GEOINT Community," said Shea. "Since Keith joined USGIF five years ago, he has helped set the strategic direction and grow the Foundation into the respected organization it

is today." Masback joined USGIF in March 2008 after more than 20 years of military and government service. He came to USGIF from the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, where he was a senior executive.

McGranahan, who has been with USGIF since its founding in 2004, oversees the foundation’s day-to-day business. Prior to joining USGIF, she worked as a project manager at Northrop Grumman TASC for the Space and Intelligence Operating Unit.
