KETIV Technologies, a leading solutions provider for Autodesk in the Southwest United States, announces the expansion of their technical services division with the hiring of David Gadberry as Director of Technical Operations. Dave brings to KETIV Technologies over 20 years' experience in engineering, design and project management, having most recently served as Vice President of Engineering at CLE (Can Lines Engineering), a leading provider of conveyor systems for the food and beverage industry.

"I am pleased to welcome such a strategic new member to our team," states Kanwar Anand, President and CEO of KETIV Technologies. "Dave has been a long-term champion for both Autodesk and KETIV Technologies. While at CLE, he led a successful transition from traditional 2D drafting to a full implementation of Autodesk Inventor(R) and Vault. Now all of KETIV's customers will benefit from his enthusiasm and proven track record."

Under Dave's leadership, CLE's engineering and design department became a highly competitive group making significant contributions to the company's growth. As a result, Autodesk awarded Can Lines the prestigious Inventor of the Month award in August 2006, recognizing their innovative use of 3D modeling to design complex conveyor systems.

As Director of Technical Operations, David Gadberry will lead KETIV's technical services division, responsible for customer training and technical support, along with the implementation of 2D and 3D design solutions using Autodesk software. "In his new role," notes Anthony Rodriguez, Vice President of KETIV Technologies, "Dave will be able to help other KETIV customers use CAD solutions to achieve similar results - effectively addressing the practical challenges engineers and designers face every day."
