Bertrand Sicot (left) will be taking over for Jeff Ray as CEO of SolidWorks. Jeff, who has held this position since 2007, has been appointed the Executive Vice President of Global Operations and also has become a member of the executive committee of SolidWorks parent company, Dassault Systemes.
Bertrand has been working at SolidWorks since 1997 in sales, both in Europe and in the United States.
As of right now I have not seen a time frame of when this change will take place. I am hoping to talk to Bertrand at SolidWorks WORLD 2011 in a couple of weeks to find out more information about the change.
