Carlson Software’s Asia-Pacific Division is lead by Regional Director Michael Manning. Headquartered near Brisbane, Australia, Manning works to service existing Carlson relationships with the region’s dealers of field surveying, civil engineering, construction, mining and other land development industries and to expand these throughout the area.

I have always believed in the Carlson Software circle of products philosophy and am excited that I will be able to play a role in plugging this one remaining gap in that circle”

-Michael Manning, Regional Sales Director
