Solibri Appoints Ville Kyytsönen as New CEO
HELSINKI, Finland, Oct 1, 2018 - Today, Solibri is pleased to announce the appointment of a new CEO – Ville Kyytsönen.
Ville has successfully led and developed multiple software companies in their business goals, with many years’ experience in delivering solutions for the construction industry. As Head of BIM at Uponor, he helped BIM and digital technologies become a key component of the company strategy. Ville was also instrumental in the creation of the industry renowned Tekla BIMsight, a solution that shares a similar vision what Solibri does: to identify and solve issues still in the design phase of construction projects.
“I am extremely excited about this new opportunity. I have watched Solibri grow to be an integral part of the digital workflow. The BIM market has an annual growth of 20% per year. The construction industry continues to digitize. Solibri’s unique technology and solutions is an excellent foundation to meet our objective: to scale the business globally, and to further increase our position as the market leader of Quality Assurance in building design.” Said Ville.
Viktor Várkonyi, Chairman of Solibri, the representative of the sole shareholder Nemetschek Group said, “Appointing Ville Kyytsönen to the role of CEO was an easy choice for me. We wanted a person with a strong vision, ambition, and experience to make BIM technologies widespread in our industry. I want to take a moment to thank Heikki Kulusjärvi (the founder and retiring CEO of Solibri) for building the company, the product and the category that we know as Solibri, with the vision of buildings that are not just free of quality problems but also cheaper and faster to construct. I am confident with Ville’s leadership, Solibri will grow to the next level, and a key part of the Nemetschek Group’s solution portfolio will continue to offer the very best solutions to its customers.”
Ville takes leadership of the company from October 1st.
