Mark de Blois

CEO/Founder

Mark de Blois is CEO of Upande Ltd. He worked as a GIS specialist for more than 19 years. Having started in the Netherlands providing consulting services and GIS training to largely government organizations, Mark eventually joined Google Kenya where he was the Geo Lead and was in charge of geo-related work across Africa. Mark left Google in June 2009 to inaugurate Upande (a name refers to ‘location’, ‘direction’, ‘destination’, ‘alongside’ and ‘up’, all of which are terms commonly used in GIS).

Here is what our clients say

"Upande is well known globally for their cutting edge technological solutions to common problems. They have seamlessly integrated map overlay data on schools, restaurants, banks into our Anza.co.ke real estate platform. Their world class standard is evident in all their work and they don't stop until they have delivered what was envisaged at the onset. I would highly recommend them to anyone keen not to get the best of what is currently available."
