Mr. Walsh is a 38-year veteran in the high technology sector who will be responsible for developing Avatech Solutions into the industry’s premier provider of computer aided design products, quality assurance software, and professional services worldwide.
Walsh’s expertise stems from leading publicly traded technology companies in the areas of sales, marketing and new market development. For 23 years, he held a variety of senior management positions with IBM where he oversaw the development and market growth of large-scale systems to the education, local and state government sectors within North America. Since 1990, he has been involved with Brite Voice Systems (now InterVoice-Brite, Inc.), a voice processing services provider, where he was instrumental in the company’s growth from a small company with $10 million in annual revenues to a company with $140 million in annual revenues in 1999 when it merged with InterVoice.
