I'd like to start by thanking Kyle for his previous efforts in running this blog. I'm not sure that my writing style is as flavorful as Kyle's but I hope that I can help effectively manage this blog going forward. I'll start by introducing myself.
My name is David Pothier and I'm the new Product Manager for Revit MEP. Although new to this position, I'm not new to Autodesk, MEP or Revit. I started my MEP career working for a small consulting engineering company in Harrisville NH where I was lucky enough to build my MEP skills as well as learn AutoCAD. After 4 years working there, I went over to the dark side (yes, I'm a Star Wars fan) and started working for a software company called DCA Engineering which then became DCA Softdesk and then Softdesk before being acquired by Autodesk just over 12 years ago.
Over the 19 years I have worked in the software business I have filled many roles. I have worked in product support and QA. I have done product design and even development where I was the primary developer for the plumbing software in Softdesk S8. I have worked with our sales channel as a partner recruiter but I have spent the majority of my time working as an Applications Engineer where I demonstrated our architecture and MEP solutions to thousands of customers across North America.
As the new Product Manager, I'm really excited by the opportunity to help make Revit MEP the software solution that everyone wants it to be.
You can expect regular posts on this blog going forward. However, unlike the past, this blog will now be used to provide information on all Autodesk's MEP solutions including AutoCAD MEP and Revit MEP. As Kyle mentioned, this isn't just me or Kyle contributing but the MEP team at Autodesk. You can expect tips and tricks, informational posts, industry news, etc. Our goal will be to start with a post each week on tuesdays and thursdays so be sure to check back often.
