Building Our Team to Better Serve Designers

Posted by Hannah Force on 2/2/17 10:08 AM
At the crux of our philosophy, we’ve always been committed to developing the best design and BIM software that’s in tune with the needs of designers. To do so, we’ve leveraged input and implemented product feedback from practicing architects, landscape designers, landscape architects, and lighting designers, among other design professionals. Another vital part of these efforts involves the help of our internal industry experts on our product marketing team, so we’re excited to announce that there are three new additions to this ever growing group: Luc Lefebvre, senior architect product specialist, Jim Woodward, senior entertainment product specialist and Brian Nicholson, senior landscape product specialist. After all, there’s no such thing as having too many industry experts. Read More
