FortiusOne Adds Former AOL Executive to Its Roster

FortiusOne, an Arlington-based Internet mapping company, said today it has hired Chris Marentis as president and chief operating officer. He was also appointed to the company's board. Marentis previously served as a senior executive at AOL and most recently was chief executive of Clearspring, a McLean-based software maker.

"With disruptive core technologies, a visionary team, and solid traction, FortiusOne has all the makings of a company that can win big in the next evolution of the Web," Marentis said in a statement. "I'm thrilled to be here and look forward to helping make it happen."

Launched in 2005, FortiusOne creates customized online maps using data culled from multiple public sources. The privately held company's clients include Lockheed Martin.

Marentis, who played center on his high school football team, joins a company with several world class rowers on its roster. (See Post story from Aug. 27). No word yet, though, on whether his new colleagues will persuade Marentis to join them in their 6 a.m. workouts on the Potomac.
