BIMobject® announces that David Jellings has joined its UK subsidiary as the new Managing Director following the retirement of his predecessor Alan Baikie.
Mr. Jellings started in his new role on May 2016. Mr. Baikie will stay on as an advisor for a transitional period.
David Jellings brings particular skills in management, sales and communication, having held senior positions with several large corporations. He is an experienced leader with strong links to the construction industry and a much sought after speaker on the BIM circuit.
“We are excited that David Jellings is joining our UK operations. With his broad experience in sales, management and strategic planning in various industries, he will become an important addition to our efforts to take BIMobject to the next level in the British market. He is a recognized expert within BIM, with a broad contact network and very good communication skills, which is highly significant for BIMobject. In conclusion, we want to thank Mr. Baikie for putting BIMobject on the map in Great Britain,” said Stefan Larsson, CEO and founder of BIMobject.
His previous experience includes Managing Director for PERA Knowledge Division until 2002, followed by three years working with generic software solutions as Sales Director at Corpora Software. He then combined these experiences to deliver business process development in the construction industry and BIM in particular. Most recently, he set up operations as Solibri UK where he developed the market to ensure their products became the industry first choice for quality assurance. In addition, he has developed and delivered BIM workshops to over 300 companies. In his new role starting 2 May, David will drive BIMobject in the UK markets.
David also works extensively with NGOs and academia to support the UK government BIM initiatives. In particular, he is heavily involved with ‘open BIM’ and an active member of the ‘buildingSMART UK & Ireland’ operational board, with specific responsibility for marketing and membership.
“As the BIM market evolves, new challenges are constantly emerging. I look forward to continuing my work with the UK construction industry to better understand the challenges that BIMobject can resolve and develop the optimum solutions to meet them. These are exciting times – we are defining the future of construction process and it is both a privilege and pleasure to be involved,” said David Jellings, Managing Director for BIMobject UK.
