Munich, September 16, 2021 – ALLPLAN, a global provider of Building Information Modeling (BIM) solutions for the AEC industry, has appointed Michelle McCarthy as the Regional Manager for the Americas and the President of their US operations with effect from August 2, 2021. She will report to the Senior Vice President of Sales at ALLPLAN, Joffrey Spinetti.
Michelle joins ALLPLAN from SDS2 where she has over 16 years of extensive sales experience. She will be in effect additionally taking over from Stuart Broome, SDS2’s previous CEO, who is the new Chief Customer Officer at Bluebeam Inc., another Nemetschek Group brand. Following the merger of ALLPLAN and SDS2 in June this year, ALLPLAN’s existing US team and SDS2 team will be combined and completely integrated by 2022.
“With Michelle’s long sales and marketing experience at SDS2, deep industry knowledge, and enthusiasm, she will be a great leader for our growth in the future,” said Dr. Detlef Schneider, CEO of ALLPLAN.
In her role as Regional Manager, Michelle will be responsible for defining and implementing ALLPLAN America’s sales and marketing strategy to strengthen the ALLPLAN presence in the steel fabrication, structural, and infrastructure engineering and construction markets, as well as the precast concrete and rebar fabricators segments. In her additional role as President, Michelle will work with the ALLPLAN executive team to ensure an exciting and successful operation within the USA. She will also be focusing on the integration of the SDS2 and ALLPLAN sales, marketing, and technical support teams to maximize business efficiency by leveraging the synergies between these two complimentary teams.
“It is a privilege to have earned the opportunity to play a leading role in shaping the future of our team in the Americas as we join forces with ALLPLAN. For much of my career, I’ve worked with SDS2 customers to help them grow their businesses and ensure their success as steel detailers and fabricators. With this change in role, my purpose has expanded to include empowering the combined ALLPLAN Americas team to do the same for all our customers in both the concrete and steel industries,” commented Michelle McCarthy.
Michelle joined SDS2 (then Design Data) in 2005 as a Sales Representative. Her focus on building strong customer relationships led to her promotion to Strategic Sales Manager, before eventually taking over as Director of Sales Operations and then Vice President of Revenue Operations at SDS2.
