Mark Fairbairn, Production Director, is also Director for XYZMaps having previously worked with Bartholomew’s. XYZ are one of the most progressive cartographic service companies, running ArcView, MapInfo, Maplex, MAPublisher as well as FreeHand and Illustrator. Mark is a keen Hearts fan and only wears his kilt under protest although maybe he protests too much?!
Tim Rideout, Company Secretary, is also Director for XYZMaps having previously worked with Bartholomew’s. XYZ are one of the most progressive cartographic service companies, running ArcView, MapInfo, Maplex, MAPublisher as well as FreeHand and Illustrator. Tim spent his formative years in South Africa and was therefore the driving force in us attending the Cape Town Book Fair! He has a keen interest in South African flowers and will wear his kilt whenever the opportunity arises!
