Jul. 13, 2016 – Bruce Rodewald has been announced as the new president and CEO of EPLAN Americas, succeeding the retiring Raymond Gaynor, who has led the Americas division since 2011.

The announcement was made by EPLAN Software & Services, a provider of engineering software solutions.

Rodewald brings 24 years of experience in industrial business development and corporate sales leadership. “A mechanical engineering graduate of Western Michigan University and former captain with the US Army Corps of Engineers, he has taken on progressively more important leadership roles in the field of industrial software and information technology since moving from the military to the private sector in 1991,” described the company in a statement.

“Design automation is the present and the future,” said Rodewald. “EPLAN products deliver a significant advantage to our clients. They provide solutions to master all critical stages of a project in the most productive fashion, from quoting and pre-planning, through all aspects of product design, then on through the product’s final assembly and delivery.”

“Ray Gaynor has offered stabilizing leadership to the team over the past five years, and we thank him for his service to the company. We wish him all the best in his future endeavours,” he added.
