BIMobject® today announce that former Autodesk and CAiCE executive, Alan Akman will join the executive management team. He will be based out of San Francisco, California. Alan Akman brings extensive experience in working with federal, state, local government organisations and private engineering companies in planning, design, engineering, construction and facilities management. 

Alan Akman has an extensive track record as a leader and an entrepreneur. A true pioneer of 3D modelling software, he founded CAiCE Software Corporation, in 1989. CAiCE was already a revolutionary CAD package based on object oriented design and a database for transportation and civil engineering professionals.

"I am very excited to join the BIMobject team. BIMobject solves the connectivity of products with designers in a smart and parametric way.
