The DriveWorks user and reseller communities continue to expand at pace, and we have welcomed a number of new and experienced team members to the DriveWorks team this year.

Common goals, collaboration, and shared knowledge are what makeDriveWorks the leading design automation and sales configurator choice for manufacturing companies across more than 50 countries.

With more than 12 years of experience in the mechanical engineering design field, we are delighted to be welcoming Lasheen into the DriveWorks team as Technical Territory Manager, Asia Pacific. Lasheen has worked with DriveWorks for many years, and has lots of experience in the CAD industry, with a focus on SOLIDWORKS.

Lasheen began his career as a Mechanical Engineer in Egypt and then Saudi Arabia. Most recently he worked for established DriveWorks reseller, Central Innovation covering Australia and New Zealand supporting DriveWorks and SOLIDWORKS software.

Lasheen has gained experience in many aspects of DriveWorks technology and supported it across many industries. This puts him in a good position to take on his new role at DriveWorks, providing support and knowledge to those wanting to evolve as resellers and users of DriveWorks software.

We are thrilled to welcome Lasheen to the DriveWorks team and to show our commitment to this region.

“We are very excited to have Lasheen join the DriveWorks Team.

International Growth

VP, Maria Sarkar adds, “At DriveWorks, we focus on developing great software for our customers. We support our users, through our global network of certified and trained resellers.

Demand for automation and online 3D configurators is accelerating around the world. So, working with our investors, BGF, we’ve developed plans for each region. One outcome of this work has led us to appoint a Technical Territory Manager for the Asia Pacific region.

We are very pleased to welcome Lasheen. He brings relevant experience and enthusiasm for the software. As an engineer, he has used DriveWorks to design “same but different” products. And, he has worked for DriveWorks Resellers in two separate territories.

Lasheen’s channel experience will help him to further support and train our resellers. Based in New Zealand, he will also encourage the wider DriveWorks Asia Pacific community, to connect and share knowledge.”
