Expert in CAD and PLM automation has joined ITI to assist clients in adding digital trust to their business processes as they extend the use of 3D data through their supply chain. 

International TechneGroup Incorporated (ITI), a Wipro company, and global leader providing reliable interoperability, validation, and migration solutions for product data and related systems, is pleased to announce the addition of Ryan Gelotte to its Services Team. Ryan brings over 20 years of industry experience analyzing and optimizing CAD and PLM-based business processes, most recently helping clients redefine engineering processes in support of Industry 4.0 and Model-Based Enterprise (MBE) initiatives.

“We are excited to have Ryan join ITI,” stated Andy Chinn, Director, and Head of Global Sales for ITI. “There’s no doubt that with his reputation and qualifications, Ryan is an exciting addition to the ITI team and will bring great value to our clients as they build our CADIQ validation solution into their enterprise PLM environment.”

Gelotte’s broad experience in product development and discreet manufacturing, combined with his expertise in Computer-Aided Design, Manufacturing, and PLM Systems, provides him a broad base of expertise to coordinate complex software deployment projects. Most recently Ryan worked as a consultant advising both large multinational enterprises as well as small custom manufacturers and providing them with training and coaching services focused on leveraging Model-Based Definition principles and technologies.

“Over the past 25 years, I have been a beneficiary of 3D digital technology. There is so much satisfaction in holding something in your hand that started as a 3D model,” comments Gelotte. “Industry 4.0 has ignited a barrage of new 3D software-enabled technology across all industries. Interoperability is more of a necessity and reality now than it ever was. I have seen first-hand how bad data can deter extremely talented people from embracing Industry 4.0 technology. I have used CADIQ over the years to build that trust in 3D data so that the data’s value can be maximized, and I look forward to enabling others to do the same. I am incredibly grateful and excited for this opportunity at ITI.”
