News OptimaNumerics, leader in high performance numerical software, is delighted to announce the appointment of Dr. Ulrich Meier as Vice President of Sales with a global responsibility for direct and indirect sales of OptimaNumerics Libraries.

Dr Meier reports directly to Dr Kenneth Tan, founder and CEO. “I am very pleased to have Ulrich on board. His deep understanding of HPC technology and the needs of industrial, government and academic HPC users will lead OptimaNumerics to broader markets and application areas.

Dr Ulrich Meier has almost two decades of experience in technical pre-sales, marketing and market development of complex IT solutions in HPC, previously with Sun Microsystems, Silicon Graphics and Convex Computers. He holds a PhD in Quantum Chemistry from the University of Bochum in Germany.

“The industry is undergoing major change again – and change makes it an exciting time,” said Dr Meier. “Quad-core, Octuple-core and higher numbers of physical cores combined with hardware-threading will soon be the standard for HPC. This will cause a paradigm shift further increasing demand on message passing and shared memory parallelism. OptimaNumerics is the only library vendor that offers this high level of scalability with its products today. We are well prepared for this change and our solutions will allow users to fully take advantage of the new processor designs. OptimaNumerics is literally at the core of these highly parallel CPUs. I am enthusiastic and optimistic to bring the highest possible compute performance to the market.”
