Prior to Agile Software, Lowenstein held senior professional services management positions at PeopleSoft, Workscape, and Sybase. Lowenstein began his professional career at Accenture and also held senior positions at Marriott International.
"Rick brings a deep understanding of the software industry to Deltek, coupled with a strong background in consulting and professional services," said Kevin Parker, president and CEO of Deltek. "His rich background and proven leadership will prove a key addition to Deltek's management team as we continue to build on our success in the project-focused software market."
"I look forward to building on the strong legacy of quality professional services at Deltek and preparing the organization for continued strong growth," Lowenstein said. "While many software companies are retrenching, Deltek is well-positioned to further its tremendous success, and I am excited to be part of the management team as we continue to establish our leadership in the project software industry."

Corporate and securities law specialist David Schwiesow was named Deltek's general counsel earlier this month. Previous to his hire, former national sales director of BearingPoint's middle market practice, Carolyn Parent, was named Deltek's executive vice president of worldwide sales in March.
