Citadon said Tuesday that Bernard Fried has been named president and CEO, effective immediately. Fried joins the San Francisco-based e-commerce company, which has created software for more than 1,400 building and engineering projects, from the Bechtel Group, one of the world's largest privately owned global engineering and construction companies.
During his four-year tenure at Bechtel, Fried was the CFO for Bechtel Enterprises, the finance, development and ownership arm of the Bechtel Group. Prior to joining Bechtel, he held multiple finance positions in several different countries for ABB, most notably as global vice president for corporate finance in Zurich, ABB's Swiss head office. Rob Majteles, Citadon's interim president and CEO, will continue to serve as company chairman.
