Gary Fohl

Founder, current board member

Gary embarked on his professional journey in the mid-eighties, initially harnessing his creativity on the drawing board before swiftly transitioning to 2D CAD systems, and ultimately diving into the world of 3D modeling by the early nineties. His career trajectory took him through a pivotal role at a leading Steel Detailing Software company, where he delved deep into the intricacies of data transfer and IFC semantics during the late 90s. As the new millennium unfolded, Gary's curiosity led him to explore the burgeoning realms of "billowy" technologies, namely point clouds and cloud computing, throughout the 2000s and 2010s. Today, he channels his vast experience and visionary leadership to steer our group's ambition towards becoming the premier service provider in our industry.
