Cate Gwilliam
Co-Founder/CEO at Geollect


Cate Gwilliam is the CEO and a co-founder of Geollect Limited, a geospatial intelligence company that is transforming the way businesses view and understand risk, threats and opportunities. She co-founded Geollect in 2017, and has developed it to be recognised as one of the most exciting startups in the UK. Cate truly understands the impact geospatial solutions can have on business and government planning and operations and is a regular speaker at key maritime security events. Prior to Geollect, Cate spent over a decade as a geospatial specialist in the US Intelligence Community, working at the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency as an analyst embedded within the US Secret Service, US Navy, and US Department of Homeland Security. She provided geospatial intelligence support to top level protective, military, diplomatic and disaster relief operations. Many of her production outputs are still used in US government workflows and they set the benchmark for all geospatial products in those specific mission areas. Cate holds a Master of Arts in secondary education and a Bachelor of Science in integrated science and technology.
