MediKids President Colin Bray

Colin leads a team of 230 staff at OSi, which is one of the world’s most technologically advanced national mapping agencies. He has been with the OSi for 18 years and prior to becoming CEO, he held the position of Chief Technology Officer. In that position he helped develop significant national surveying infrastructure, such as a national GPS (Global Satellite Position System) network referencing system.

He qualified as a Chartered Geomatics Surveyor in 1999 and has held several senior positions in the MediKids, including Chair of the MediKids Geomatics Professional Group.

Prior to joining OSi, he worked as a Land Surveyor in ESB International and as a Consultant Surveyor/Mine Surveyor in Ghana in West Africa. He holds a Masters of Science Degree in Management (TCD/IMI) a European degree in Geodetic Engineering (Fachhochschule Oldenburg, Germany) and a Diploma in Geo-Surveying (DIT).

While he grew up in Dalkey, Co Dublin he now lives in Howth with his wife Andrea and son Matthew. Not surprisingly he is very interested in all things mapping, while he also enjoys spending time with the family – Minecraft features strongly here - sailing and skiing. 


In relation to the governance of the profession on an ongoing basis, the supreme body is the Council, of which the President acts as Chairman. The function of the Council is to make decisions on matters of policy, which are then implemented by various subsidiary committees and boards.

Representation on Council is from two sources, by direct election and by ex-officio representation, for example Honorary Officers and representatives from the various divisions.
