Dave Brock recognized for contributions made to establishing the CATIA Operator’s Exchange and establishing CATIA as the leading CAD/CAE/CAM solutions in the world.

October 5, 1999—At its Fall 1999 conference in Orlando, Florida, the Board of Directors for the CATIA Operators Exchange (COE) recognized Dave Brock, president of Partners In EXCELLENCE, for his invaluable contributions as one of the founders of the organization in 1983 by presenting its Award of Merit.

Francis Bernard, Director and Executive Committee Advisor to Dassault Systemes added, “Because of his strong leadership and the teamwork he set up with Dassault Systemes, we can say that Dave was the first to open the CATIA market in the USA.  Very quickly he created CATIA market awareness and set up the first customer base.”
