Chief Executive Officer
Altium Limited is a Computer Software company that develops Printed Circuit Board Design Software.
Aram has been a driving force at Altium since the early 1990s. Aram commenced his career with Altium as Director of Research and Development from 1991-1999. Following a successful IPO in 1999, Aram left Altium to explore his interest in web-based technology before returning to Altium in 2010 when he was appointed Head of Engineering, and later Chief Technology Officer. Aram was appointed Chief Executive Officer in January 2014 and is an Executive Director of the Board. Aram is at the forefront of the development of Altium’s strategic direction and is responsible for leading the company’s global business strategy. Aram has a deep understanding of the EDA industry, accumulated through many years of being at the frontline of CAD software development. He also has a strong track record in financial management and stakeholder engagement. At the heart of his visionary approach to bring about a transformation to the electronics industry is Altium’s strong financial performance and Altium’s ability to strategically partner within the industry. Under Aram’s leadership tenure, Altium has become the fastest growing EDA company. As a Baha'i refugee from Iran, career entrepreneur and the CEO of Altium (an ASX100 publicly listed company) I am most passionate about enterprises that combine technology and people to drive business innovation and deliver value.
