Following the recent closure of a Series A funding round – which saw GeoSpock secure an additional $6.6 million (£5 million), bringing the total amount raised to $13.3 million (£9.25 million) – the data visualisation company is expanding its C-suite team to bolster skills and expertise in the finance and operations teams, as part of its aggressive global growth strategy.
