CD-adapco Carrying Forward the Vision and Passion of President and CEO, Steve MacDonald

NEW YORK, NY and LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwired - September 04, 2015) - Today, CD-adapco announces with profound sadness the passing of its President, CEO and Co-founder, Peter "Steve" MacDonald who died late on Wednesday, September 2, 2015.

Throughout his 35 years of leadership, Steve passionately pursued his vision of "no-compromise" engineering simulation applied to real world products and processes. In fulfilling that vision, Steve's primary objective was to achieve his customer's goals and to push the capabilities of CD-adapco's software products beyond the merely possible. Steve's unfailing commitment to recruit the best and brightest engineers leaves CD-adapco with the talent necessary to maintain its strong worldwide support organization and its leading industry position.

Although the company is mourning his passing, Steve's legacy is alive in a healthy organization of talented and motivated individuals who are carrying forward his vision and continuing his customer-first business model.

Sharron L. MacDonald succeeds Steve MacDonald as the Interim President and CEO of CD-adapco worldwide.
