2014 was both a challenging and rewarding year at PADT. One area of the company that achieved success last year was the ANSYS Sales team. Lead by Bob Calvin, our account managers Oren Raz and Patrick Barnett worked with the support of our technical team throughout the year to help our customers find the right solution for their simulation needs. All that hard work resulted in a record year of sales for ANSYS products by PADT.
A big "Thank You" needs to go out to all of our fantastic customers who make selling and supporting this tool such a pleasure. Our success is a direct result of the success that they are having in the application of ANSYS, Inc. technology to improve their products and their product development process. I know that sounds kind of "salesy" but it is true. We keep selling more of this stuff for one simple reason, it works.
And making it work is also the job of our technical support team, our engineers who serve as application engineers, and the business support staff that takes care of the details.
This week we were lucky to have Bob Thibeault, the new ANSYS Director North America Channel, and Clark Cox, the ANSYS Channel Account Manager, visit Phoenix and we were able to get a picture with them as we placed our 6th annual sales achievement medal on our "wall o' awards."
Things are already off to a great start for 2015 and we hope to be working with even more customers as we help them explore new and profitable ways to apply this technology.
