Greg Bentley said, “While Bentley Systems accomplished much throughout our 36 years of growth as a privately-held company, and I am proud of our executive talent depth, we obviously could not internally develop public company experience. The principal purpose of our IPO last month was to assure market liquidity for our colleagues, and especially executive shareholders, in advance of many anticipated retirements. In turn, for the executive opportunities accordingly created, our new higher profile as a public company serves to help attract world-class talent from top public technology companies.
“I enthusiastically welcome Nicholas Cumins, Kat Lord-Levins, and Chris Bradshaw to share their energy, wisdom, and especially their lessons learned within public companies. And on his retirement after 26 years, I particularly thank and congratulate Bhupinder Singh, truly a 'foundation pillar' of Bentley Systems!”
