Autodesk named Andrew Anagnost, formerly co-interim CEO and SVP of business strategy and marketing, president and CEO. Anagnost replaces Carl Bass, who resigned in February, in the role.
Additionally, Amar Hanspal, SVP, chief product officer and co-interim CEO with Anagnost since February, is leaving Autodesk after 30 years with the company.
“We were first to bring design to the cloud and mobile, and now we’re bringing construction and manufacturing to the cloud as well,” Anagnost said in a prepared statement. “I can’t wait to lead Autodesk into our next phase of growth, where we will combine business and product innovation to become an even more customer-focused company.”
Anagnost joined Autodesk in 1997 after working at Lockheed Aeronautical Systems Company and at NASA Ames Research Center. More recently, he was in charge of the company’s transition to a subscription business model.
