Goodbye Excitech (and thank you); hello HOK!

Its been a few weeks since I've posted, but I've got some exciting news I'd like to share with my regular readers. I have managed to secure a post at HOK as their Revit Specialist for the London office. This is an exciting career opportunity for me and will once again place me firmly back within industry.

I have been with Excitech for that last five years and I must thank them for all the opportunities that they have given me. It has been an amazing ride; taking Revit from new kid of the block status to mainstream architectural solution. Those that still doubt, have yet to see the "light", but when they do, they will understand what the hype is all about.

Along the way I have managed to spread my passion and enthusiasm of the Revit technologies to others. Its such a great feeling to see users that you have trained and mentored reap the true benefits of Revit and BIM. As many of you know Revit is not without its challenges, it does some great stuff, but it also does some really annoying stuff, but once you "get it" ,the way you work as an architect or designer will change for ever.

I will continue to post to my blog on everything Revit and BIM, but I hope to apply an industry view to some of the posts. I look forward to meeting many of you that have posted thoughts and feedback to my blog at AU2008 this year, as I am now sit firmly on your side of the fence. :-) So, goodbye Excitech (and thank you) and hello HOK!

Congratulations on the move, seems to be quite a trend for Revit reseller/support people to move to the real world.
