Over the past few years, I have seen numerous employees move from one construction collaboration technology vendor to another. This ‘musical chairs’ process has been common among sales people – I’m still in contact with some individuals who have worked for three or more providers – but it also occasionally extends to directors.
The latest executive to re-surface in a new role is Gert-Jan de Kieviet, formerly managing director for central Europe at BuildOnline. He remained with that business through its 2006 merger with Citadon to form CTSpace, and its subsequent 2007 acquisition by Sword Group before leaving Sword-CTSpace about a year ago, in late 2010 (post). Today, his LinkedIn profile says he is managing director EMEA at Cadac Organice, which sells Microsoft SharePoint-based solutions for engineering document management.
