Michael J. Knell -- Furniture Today, February 22, 2013
LAVAL, Quebec — Interior design and furniture manufacturing software designer 20-20 Technologies has named Mark Goldstein as CEO, succeeding Tom Tiernan, who assumed the post on an interim basis last November.
A 30-year veteran of the enterprise software industry, Goldstein was previous CEO of Abaqus, a provider of computer aided engineering software, until its acquisition by Dassault Systèmes. Following the acquisition, Goldstein continued as CEO of Dassault Systèmes SIMULA. He also served as executive vice president, responsible for various strategic growth and business development initiatives.
Prior to joining Abaqus, Goldstein was with Structural Research Dynamics Corp. for 23 years, rising to vice president of the products group, with responsibility for 800 professionals.
"I'm delighted to join the company that has been so instrumental in transforming the entire interior design and furniture industry, and frankly thrilled with the opportunity to guide its next steps," Goldstein said.
"Mark is a proven enterprise software executive with a strong track record of both strategic and operational leadership to build sustainable value," said Aalok Jain, a principal at Vector Capital and member of 20-20's board of directors. "We are confident that his customer-focused approach and deep product experience will allow 20-20 to deliver innovative, vertically integrated solutions to the industry."
