Viewpoint names Manolis Kotzabasakis, formerly CTO at Aspen Technology, as its new CEO
Portland, Oregon, US-based Viewpoint Construction Software, ERP vendor and parent company of the UK-founded 4Projects SaaS construction collaboration business (with its core application shortly to be rebranded as Viewpoint for Projects), has announced its new CEO (see also Oregon Live). He is Manolis Kotzabasakis, formerly chief technology officer at Massachusetts-based Aspen Technology – a provider of software and services for the process industries. He steps into the role vacated by Jay Haladay who announced in April that he was standing down after 25 years running the business and a hands-on role in the 4Projects acquisition in February 2013.
Kotzabasakis, 56, had been with Aspen since 1997 (it has a market value of about $3.75 billion and reported $391.5 million in revenue in 2014). He will move to Portland when he starts his new job, and in a written statement he said:
“I look forward to working closely with the entire team to help drive and support Viewpoint’s strategic initiatives while fostering a corporate culture of innovation and collaboration,”
