7th February 2017 – GRAITEC, an international BIM and CAD software developer for AEC, and Autodesk® Platinum Partner in US and across Europe, is delighted to announce an exciting change in the groups executive management structure.
Current President and CEO Francis Guillemard has relinquished his CEO responsibilities to concentrate on presidential duties including maximising focus on group strategy, external growth, investor communications and relations and the financial controls of the company.
Current COO Manuel Liedot assumes the position of CEO where he can utilise 25 years plus of experience in the business, concentrating on implementing Graitec's mid to long term strategies and day to day executive management decisions.
Graitec UK Managing Director and Americas VAR Principal Steve Houlder moves into the COO role, bringing his experience of delivering growth in the Autodesk Reseller Channel with a focus of replicating this success across the group for both Autodesk and Graitec Products.
Francis Guillemard, GRAITEC President adds: "The change in our executive structure is a natural evolution for the business and one which sees our most successful and experienced talent promoted into the roles that that will help us meet our strategic goals in 2017 and beyond.
The cornerstone of a successful business is often defined by a strong executive management team and with proven track records of business management and growth, both these appointments bring an added dimension to our business allowing us to roll out already successful sales strategies across the group".
