And there it is. Exuberance wins the day.

“Autodesk, Inc. today announced that its board of directors has appointed Andrew Anagnost, current interim co-chief executive officer and chief marketing officer, as the company’s new president and CEO, effective immediately. He will also join Autodesk’s board of directors.”

The twist…

Amar Hanspal, senior vice president, chief product officer and interim co-CEO, has decided to leave the company.

The drama continues.

If you want to connect with Anagnost on LinkedIn (my request is still pending from months/years ago.)


Never met him. Based solely on these photos (I base most of my character judgements on photos), I am unconvinced.


If he had neck tattoos… it would be a totally different story.


Getting there.


Is Autodesk still relevant? Asking for a friend.


I would say, yes. most definitely. That is, if they continue on the path they’ve set for Fusion 360. Interested to see what they do with Project Leopard and how they bring Inventor and Fusion 360 together.

And if that doesn’t answer your question, maybe this will…


Former MMA fighter by any chance?
