Enthought Announces Formation of Digital Transformation, Materials Science Advisory Boards

Austin, TX – June 15, 2021 – Enthought, the leading provider of technologies and services that deliver digital innovation to science-driven companies, is experiencing rapid growth as companies look to accelerate their adoption of new technologies, such as artificial intelligence and machine learning, in response to COVID-19. In support of Enthought’s growth, strategic vision and expansion of the compelling solutions provided to customers, the company today announced it has formed two new Advisory Boards for its Digital Transformation and Materials Science groups and the participation of four world-class experts to serve as advisors.

The role of each Board is to provide strategic guidance on Enthought’s go-to-market priorities, and to help deliver innovative and best-of-breed solutions to its far-reaching roster of internationally recognized science-based customers.

“I am pleased to announce the additions of the Digital Transformation and Materials Science Advisory Boards as we continue to build momentum and capitalize on the tremendous market opportunity in the digitalization of scientific innovation,” said Bill Cowan, President at Enthought. “The breadth and depth of the Boards’ collective expertise will no doubt drive transformative results for our customers and Enthought.”

The Digital Transformation Advisory Board is chaired by Dr. Michael Connell, Chief Operating Officer and Chief Digital Transformation Officer at Enthought. The Board’s inaugural members include Dr. Bryan Moser, Academic Director of Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s System Design and Management (SDM) Program; and Dr. Bernie Jaworski, Peter F. Drucker Chair in Management and the Liberal Arts at the Drucker School of Management, Claremont Graduate University.

“In a post-pandemic world, digital transformation means more than just technology adoption. To form a fully-realizable digital transformation strategy that gives your company the competitive edge, change must be foundational and extend to your employees – their skills, behaviors, mindsets and processes,” said Dr. Michael Connell, COO, CDxO, Enthought. “At Enthought, our customer success stories reinforce the power of applying digital transformation initiatives from the ground-up. I am excited to work with the Board to continue to help science-driven companies cultivate their digital DNA and empower them with technologies that enable future agility and innovation.”

The Materials Science Advisory Board is chaired by Dr. Chris Farrow, Vice President of Materials Science Solutions at Enthought. The Board’s inaugural members include Dr. Patrick Spicer, Associate Professor at University of New South Wales’ School of Chemical Engineering; and Dr. Roger Bonnecaze, the William and Bettye Nowlin Chaired Professor in the McKetta Department of Chemical Engineering at the University of Texas at Austin.

“I am honored to chair the Materials Science Board, and look forward to collaborating with other like-minded experts in the field to advance Enthought’s mission of bringing much needed digital innovation capabilities to materials science companies,” said Dr. Chris Farrow, VP, Materials Science Solutions, Enthought.
