Doug Bevill, new President for BIMobject operations in the US

BIMobject® announces today that senior executive Doug Bevill has joined the company as the new President for BIMobject Inc. The US head office will also be moved to St. Louis, Missouri during February, to be closer to the building product manufacturers. A St. Louis office is a strategic decision, as we now enter into the next phase of our US market strategy.

Alan Akman has established our operations and brand in the US in very short time. He made great progress in setting up the structure, executing legal and branding activities, as well as formalizing all relationships with the software and IT industry in Silicon Valley. BIMobject Inc. now moves into the next phase, where sales execution and close project work is vital, and St. Louis is a much better choice. It will be lead by Doug Bevill, a seasoned industry executive. Doug's experience includes 18 years at McGraw Hill Construction and he has managed several Building Product Manufacturers in the US market.

BIMobject will now intensify efforts to increase market penetration in the US, through the  hiring of both technical and sales staff at the new location in St. Louis. Alan Akman will pursue his career outside BIMobject.

"We are excited to have Doug Bevill on board. With his extensive experience from the manufacturing industry of building products as well as McGraw Hill Construction, he will be a key to take BIMobject to the next level in the US market. Silicon Valley was a great location to start with, but as we now move beyond the startup phase, we need to get closer to our customers, the Building Product Manufacturers. We want to thank Alan Akman for his hard work and the massive energy that he contributed to kickstart our operations in  establishing BIMobject in the US. Thanks to Alan, we are now a brand recognized in the US market", says Stefan Larsson, CEO at BIMobject.
