I’m quite pleased to have Al on board.  Al will initially be focused on working with the team to align the organization structure, processes, and metrics to support our accelerating growth.  The rate of change within the utility and communications marketplace is unprecedented, and our customers are continuing to actively adopt our intelligent design solutions as organizations aim to improve productivity and enable digital twins and BIM to improve the overall quality of their design, construction and infrastructure management processes.  Al’s experience will help us immensely. 

With Al assuming the role of President, I’m excited to focus on my responsibilities as Chief Executive Officer for the foreseeable future including customer engagement, partner development, and strategy and product roadmaps.  The company continues to be an exciting place to work and there are many things we seek to accomplish as we advance our intelligent design solutions throughout the global marketplace. “
