Dr. Lee’s role will be multi-faceted, although key areas will include spearheading the development of Quanser’s global academic community, guidance for Quanser technology and solution development, as well as supporting the company’s partner and alliance programs.
Dr. Lee comes to Quanser from MapleSoft, a valued Quanser partner, where he was Vice President, Applications Engineering and Chief Evangelist.
“Tom is a passionate advocate for the improved quality of Engineering Education, which is what we are all about,” said Paul Gilbert, CEO of Quanser. “He brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to our team, along with a unique balance of technical, business and organizational abilities. We can’t wait to get started.”
Dr. Lee will assume his new position in June of 2011, working primarily from the company’s Waterloo office, but will spend time in Markham and traveling around the globe.
