“I am very much looking forward to applying my years of experience in the Media & Entertainment industry at Adobe Systems to MAXON and initiate and implement steps towards further growth,” McGavran said.

The three original founders and serving Managing Directors of the company--Uwe Bärtels, Harald Egeland Harald Schneider--will step back and retire after 32 years serving the company, but stay available in an advisory capacity.

“Thirty-two years ago, the three of us founded MAXON and we managed to establish it as one of the world's most successful companies in the 3D market with constant growth and success over the years," said Harald Egel, CEO and Managing Director.

"Now the time has come to hand over the reins to another, newer generation and we are happy to have found a worthy successor in David McGavran who will continue MAXON's success story in the coming years," Egel said. "At the same time, we would like to express our thanks to all those who have given us outstanding support over the years and have placed their trust in us.”
