Amol KitwadkarData Administrator
As Data Administrator, Mr. Kitwadkar works across Pinnacle’s departments to develop the best processes for efficiency and systems automation. His work migrating the company’s data into database form is targeted toward helping Pinnacle serve even more clients simultaneously.
Mr. Kitwadkar’s GIS career has brought him through oil and gas, utilities, and environmental engineering companies, and he has gained rich experience manipulating, cleaning up, and standardizing data and developing applications in all of these industries. At Pinnacle he puts this multiple-industry awareness toward developing solutions for data transfer and improving efficiency.
He earned his Bachelor’s of Technology in Civil Engineering from Walchand College of Engineering, Sangli, in India and a Master of Science in Civil Engineering (with a focus on Environmental Engineering and GI)S from Colorado State University in Fort Collins. He retains memberships in the Northern Colorado Chapter of the American Society of Civil Engineers and the GIS Community in Colorado.
Since 2012, Mr. Kitwadkar has been part of the Cultural Mentors’ team at Colorado State University’s Office of International Programs, drawing on his own experience to help make incoming international students’ transition to the US as smooth as possible. He considers offering resources in areas such as grocery shopping, housing, and navigating culture shocks as paying it forward. Receiving the same generous help, he says, shaped him into the person he is today.
Off the clock Mr. Kitwadkar indulges his creativity leading an electronic dance band known as Unified Diversity, whose music comes by way of ethnic instruments from all over the world. He participates in songwriting and sound production and design, and the band’s music can be found on streaming platforms. He enjoys keeping fit and runs half and full marathons when he’s able and is training for a future Ironman.
