LONGMONT, Colo., Nov. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- DigitalGlobe(R) has appointed Jill Smith to the position of president and CEO.

"DigitalGlobe has seen excellent growth in its commercial markets, and I see enormous upside potential to be realized through a heightened focus on select strategic commercial and government markets," said Smith. "I look forward to helping the company strengthen its current leadership position."

In Satterlee's continued role as company chairman, he will be working with DigitalGlobe's defense and intelligence business unit, managing government relations around the world.
