Riffyn, a global provider of cloud software for scientific process
design and data analytics, announced today that Larry Peck has joined
the company’s executive team as Vice President of Engineering. Larry
will lead the expansion of Riffyn’s engineering team and the development
and delivery of new product capabilities as Riffyn fulfills its vision
for computer-aided design and machine learning in the sciences.

“I am profoundly delighted to have Larry join the Riffyn leadership
team,” said Tim Gardner, Founder/CEO of Riffyn. “With his decades of
experience in Computer Aided Design software at Autodesk, Larry is
perfectly suited to advancing the development of Riffyn’s unique
technology for “scientific blueprints”, our patented
computer-aided-design approach to science that delivers clean,
contextualized, and connected data. Larry brings a track record of
exceptional product, engineering and organizational achievements that
will serve us well as he grows the team and engineering capability.”

Larry has spent over 20 years leading global software teams of 12 to
1200 engineers in the US, Asia and Europe in the successful development
and delivery of software products focused on design, manufacture,
collaboration, and lifecycle management. He oversaw all of Autodesk’s
software development in Shanghai and Singapore, delivering significant
gains in operational efficiency. Larry repeatedly delivered software
that achieved double-digit percentage increases in year-over-year
revenue for the Manufacturing digital design market. He also effectively
integrated global teams distributed at sites in Asia, Europe and the US.

Mr. Peck noted, “I have spent much of my career at Autodesk developing
structured design and data capture tools for mechanical industries —
tools that have conferred enormous benefits to those industries, but are
largely missing in the life sciences. I’m thrilled to join Riffyn and
help realize the company’s vision for transformative digital design
tools in the life science industries.”
