John Shain, GISP
Principal GIS Project Manager
John began his career with Bolton & Menk in 1999 after graduating with a degree in professional geography. His passion for local government and computer science morphed into an interest and expertise in mapping and displaying data. Bolton & Menk was willing to take a chance with John and embraced his ideas for GIS that were not yet widely practiced. Now Bolton & Menk is a premier GIS provider for municipalities. As the principal work group leader of GIS services, John has managed a variety of GIS projects that include municipal implementations of GIS systems, public utility and infrastructure mapping, stormwater management, and web application development. John is a true Minnesotan, with hockey running through his blood. He not only enjoys watching and playing hockey but is also a youth hockey coach for his children.
