The president, CEO and co-founder of CD-adapco, Peter “Steve” MacDonald, passed away late on Wednesday, September 2, 2015.
Throughout his 35 years of leadership, MacDonald passionately pursued his vision of “no-compromise” engineering simulation applied to real world products and processes. In fulfilling that vision, his primary objective was to achieve his customer’s goals and to push the capabilities of CD-adapco’s software products beyond the merely possible.
MacDonald’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, MacDonald’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.
