Avitru Names Doug Bevill Product General Manager of Its Building Product Solutions Group
ATLANTA – Avitru, the developer of AIA MasterSpecⓇ, is investing in its commitment to building product manufacturers (BPMs) with the addition of industry leader Doug Bevill as the Product General Manager of its Building Product Solutions group.
In this newly-created executive position, Bevill will lead Avitru’s Building Product Solutions team in developing, launching and supporting data-based solutions to enable BPMs to grow their engagement with architects, engineers and designers.
“I am proud to welcome Doug to the Avitru team,” said Jim Contardi, Avitru’s Chief Executive Officer. “With his blend of experience as both a BPM and as a successful consultant, he understands the industry problems that Avitru, as the developer of AIA MasterSpec, is uniquely positioned to solve.”
Bevill most recently served as President and Chief Executive Officer of BIMobject, Inc., growing the organization from one employee in North America to a sustainable multi-million dollar business. Prior to his role at BIMobject he was the Chief Economist and Director of Enterprise Solutions for The Blue Book Building & Construction Network, where he consulted directly with BPMs on their sales and marketing strategies. Doug also served for nearly a decade at the Hager Companies, a leading provider of door hardware products, where he held senior leadership roles in sales and marketing.
“I had the honor of collaborating closely with Avitru when I led BIMobject,” said Bevill. “Our research showed that MasterSpec was the specification used in nearly 2 out of 3 large non-residential projects and had mindshare that was even higher. They have the people, technology and content to have a dramatic impact on how the industry makes decisions on what products they select for the built environment. I look forward to being part of this team poised to shape the future of the $1 trillion AECO industry.”
“Avitru has been executing aggressively on a variety of new products and analytics solutions for manufacturers; Doug’s leadership is helping speed the availability of those products to increase manufacture engagement with building and construction decision makers,” added Karthik Mani, Avitru’s Executive Vice President of Product and Delivery. “We are excited to show our customers what we have planned.”
Bevill will attend the 2018 CONSTRUCT Show, held Oct. 3-5 in Long Beach, Calif., where Avitru is exhibiting at Booth 537.
