Hi, I'm Chris Turner, and I am the Manufacturing Industry Team Leader. My responsibilities are supervising the MFG Application Engineers as well as customer training, technical support, consultancy and solution/product demonstrations.
I have some 25 years technical, business and sales experience in the CAD industry and have worked with some varied products. Although I was initially trained on the Integraph 3D systems back in 1985, I moved onto working, training and supporting the high end Computervision products in South Africa. My first touch on Autodesk products was on AutoCAD with Designer and AutoSurf add-ons and not long after that I championed the Autodesk Mechanical Desktop.
Since coming to the UK in 1999, I joined Autodesk Distribution and was heavily involved directly with the Autodesk team on launching their new manufacturing product 'Rubicon' which became Inventor. This involved training and developing the Autodesk channel partners that market and support their manufacturing solutions today. After 6 years working with Autodesk, I joined Midas in 2005 and together with a great team industry specialists, I have enjoyed working with many customers who have successfully implemented the Autodesk Inventor and data management solutions.
