Assemble Systems Welcomes New COO
Donald Henrich brings management, entrepreneurial, high-tech experience to role
Assemble Systems has named Donald R. Henrich as chief operating officer for the company. Henrich brings extensive experience in building organizations and market share for their products and will be responsible for strategy, marketing, sales and customer success.
“Today, over 100 of the top general contractors are Assemble customers with that number growing rapidly,” Henrich says. “There is a huge opportunity at Assemble to help contractors, EPC companies, owners, and other agencies improve their use of and access to 3D data for construction planning and project management. We believe that an easy-to-use, ubiquitous platform for models, drawings and engineering data is a key enabler in unlocking huge productivity gains for our customers and partners.”
Henrich most recently was head of global sales for Trimble Navigation’s general contractor business, where he led a team of employees and partners marketing, selling and supporting the Trimble Buildings portfolio. He joined Trimble in 2012 via the acquisition of Vico Software, which he cofounded. Prior to starting Vico, he was vice president and general manager of Graphisoft US, which he joined in 2004 and where the ideas for 5D BIM emerged.
“We are extremely pleased to announce Don’s decision to join our team,” says Howard Davis, CEO of Assemble Systems. “Don’s extensive knowledge of the high-tech industry, coupled with his proven entrepreneurial and management skills, are enormous assets to our growing organization. His leadership of our client-facing organization speaks to Assemble Systems’ ongoing commitment to provide superior service to our clients. Don brings an additional dimension to our team, and we look forward to working with him as we continue to grow in commercial construction and expand into EPC and Civil construction opportunities.”
Henrich’s prior industry experience includes startups as well as his role as president and CEO of SET, a privately-held software tools company funded by Charles River Ventures and acquired by MKS Inc. Before SET, he was senior vice president of marketing at Parametric Technology Corporation, an engineering software company, headquartered in Needham, Mass., where he also held general manager positions running Asia and Europe. He was also cofounder of MatrixOne, now a subsidiary of Dassault Systemes of France. Henrich holds a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from Northeastern University.
