BJ Holtgrewe is a Senior Product Manager/Technical Evangelist in the Microsoft Business Tools Division. He spends every waking hour spreading the gospel of Microsoft's location-based products including MapPoint to customers, developers, software vendors, Microsoft Certified Solution Providers, and almost anyone else that will listen - you will have lasting memories if you sit next to him on a long flight! As a member of Geography Product Unit, BJ helps shape the vision for Microsoft products that have geographic and location-aware functionality.

Prior to his Technical Evangelist role, BJ served as a Product Planner for MapPoint. When he first joined the team he served as the Lead Program Manager in the Microsoft Map Building System. BJ is currently emerged in Microsoft's .NET initiative and holds two patents in the area of location awareness. He is a speaker at numerous conferences and seminars, and is currently authoring a book on MapPoint 2002.

Before life at Microsoft, he was a project and design consultant and worked for software companies on the East Coast and in Europe. In his spare time he loves to travel the world (someone needs to check the accuracy of the maps!). He has an incurable appetite for European professional cycling and old printed maps. Even earlier in his history BJ was an avid skydiver instructor, internationally rated skydiving judge and underwater search and recovery diver.
