“It’s very gratifying to see Scott stepping into this new role after successfully positioning Dassault Systèmes’ SIMULIA brand as the world’s most innovative model-based simulation solution, most recently by enabling wide adoption of composites and other new materials in many industries and by establishing 3D simulation as the future of life sciences with The Living Heart project,” said Bernard Charlès, President & CEO, Dassault Systèmes. “North America is a huge market with great potential for Dassault Systèmes. The market dynamic, coupled with our innovation, position our 3DEXPERIENCE platform as the next major transformation for customers that are repositioning their portfolios in the experience economy.”

Berkey joined Dassault Systèmes in 2006 as Vice President of Worldwide Operations within the company’s SIMULIA brand, and was named CEO of SIMULIA in 2008, a role he will retain. In order to best serve customers and to be close to the key industries that Dassault Systèmes is working with, Berkey now heads a leadership team for seven regions within North America. Area heads for each of the regions have an on-the-ground leader to drive and meet the business requirements for customers and their unique industry and local needs.

Berkey brings almost thirty years of enterprise software experience to his new role. Prior to Dassault Systèmes, Berkey held senior executive positions at several companies, including multiple executive roles at Structural Dynamics Research Corporation (SDRC) and as CEO at both Proficiency and Axentis. While overseeing SIMULIA, Berkey’s improvements to the brand’s global operations led to increased revenue, profit and global market share.

Bruno Latchague, who preceded Berkey as Managing Director and drove the growth of the Americas market over the last two years, will continue to have overall responsibility for both North America and Latin America in his new role as Senior Executive Vice President, Global Field Operations (Americas), Industry Solutions & Indirect Channels.

“Dassault Systèmes has given me a wonderful opportunity and I’m looking forward to building on the success of my predecessors,” said Scott Berkey. “The North American market is poised for great growth, and I intend to maximize the opportunity by empowering our incredible team to do what they do best – give our customers business value with our 3DEXPERIENCE platform.”

The North American region produces approximately 30% of Dassault Systèmes’ total revenue, with more than 78,000 customers and 130 partners located throughout the region. Seven of the company’s 12 brands are headquartered in North America, staffed by more than 3,300 employees across 40 locations in the US and Canada. Fourteen of Dassault Systèmes’ strategic acquisitions have been based in North America. Dassault Systèmes’ North American-based customers include Procter & Gamble, Ford Motor Company, Tesla Motors, Bell Helicopter and Boeing.
