Mr. Vaughn then joined Synaps, Inc. where he helped to develop and market software and provide services in the area of process integration and design optimization for the aerospace and defense industries. This allowed him to apply his skills across multiple disciplinary boundaries working with customers such as Bombardier, Cessna Aircraft, Airbus, and Pacific Marine to name just a few. Before Synaps was acquired by Engineous Software, Mr. Vaughn was named V.P, Product Management. With Engineous, David further entrenched himself in the global CAE marketplace by leading Special Programs, where he once again specialized in providing solutions to customers worldwide for integrating CFD and other CAE processes for multi-disciplinary design.

"David brings to CD-adapco a unique combination of applied CFD know-how together with the business experience of helping to build a successful CAE solutions company," said Dr. Dennis Nagy, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development at CD-adapco. "David's reputation as a trusted CAE partner within major aerospace and defense corporations is evidence of our continued dedication to meet the strategic needs for CFD and related CAE solutions in this industry."
