June 12, 2019: OAKLAND, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--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.

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.”
