Livermore, Calif. — March 30, 2021 — Topcon Positioning Group announces Curtiss Dorr has joined the company as the senior government and strategic business development manager for North America. In this newly created role, Dorr will bring his experience to bear — particularly in the quickly-changing realm of GPS paving solutions — both in support of existing strategic partners, associations, agencies, transportation ministries and federal and state departments of transportation, and in identifying new relationships in the market.
“We are excited to welcome Curtiss and the wealth of expertise he brings to the Topcon team,” said Brian Juroff, vice president of construction sales. “In this new position, he will build upon the already-strong inroads we’ve made via our suite of intelligent paving solutions in the industry and take them further toward becoming the solutions of choice in key companies, both public and private.”
Dorr has more than two decades of managerial, sales, training, and construction industry-related operations experience, in areas ranging from sales of GNSS products to software, logistics and more. He said he sees joining Topcon as an exciting, mutually beneficial opportunity, made even better by the chance to continue serving the people he’s come to respect in construction.
“Having started my career on the operations side of the construction industry, I always look for value,” said Dorr. “My experience shows that companies want solutions and technologies that bring value to as many people within their organization as possible. And when they find it, they embrace it. That is what I see within Topcon — an ability to deliver value through our solution suites. I view Topcon as one of the most progressive companies in terms of providing solutions for the construction and geospatial markets, so I’m eager to contribute to that effort and work with the people, organizations, and communities we serve.”
He added that listening to, and acting upon, the needs of the industry and Topcon partners is vital. With that in mind, he looks forward to working with key companies, transportation departments, ministries, and agencies in their efforts to enhance projects by increasing the integration of technology. “Topcon technologies, such as SmoothRide, Millimeter GPS, Pavelink, and intelligent compaction solutions are an integral part of meeting infrastructure demands,” he said. “I am excited to help connect decision makers to these technologies to meet immediate and future needs for greater quality, efficiency, productivity and value.”
