John Tanner, Tanner EDA founder, will continue in his role as CEO.
â€œTo support our plans for continued growth and to build on our 20 years of success, we are adding to our executive team,â€ said John Tanner, CEO, Tanner EDA. â€œGreg has the management and business experience and acumen to put new initiatives and plans in place that will support our existing customers and attract new ones.â€
