Belle Walker is the Founder and Lead Consultant of Belleview Consulting. Until April 2019, she was a Director of Engineering at HERE Technologies, an industry leader in digital mapping. There, she built several successful teams, including one responsible for content and process quality, process efficiency, and operational excellence for the HD Live Map product. Merging data scientists, software engineers, systems engineers, project managers, and more, showcased Belle’s organizational design and leadership skills.
Belle began her career at Google, where she built a nation-wide aerial photography operation and supported the Street View vehicle roll-out. After Google, Belle earned a master’s degree at USC, studying the application of systems engineering and operations research to organizations. Her work demonstrated that the principles can apply equally well to systems of humans as to systems of steel or code. Belle then led Product Management for a digital marketing company based in Irvine before moving back to the Bay Area for her role at HERE. In between these roles, she launched Belleview Consulting in 2012, turning her full attention to the company in late 2019.
Belle holds a Bachelor’s degree from Harvard in Mechanical Engineering and a Master’s degree from the University of Southern California in Systems Architecting and Engineering.
