Selvy to lead product strategy to capitalize on growing demand for MBSE

Brian-SelvyBLACKSBURG, VA, USA, April 5, 2022 — Vitech, a leading global provider of Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) and digital engineering solutions and part of Zuken, today announced that Brian Selvy has been named Chief Innovation Officer. Mr. Selvy is tasked with leading the R&D team to develop innovative engineering solutions that contribute to the adoption of MBSE and client success.

“Brian has a strong background in systems engineering and has worked in several industries where product and process complexity were becoming increasingly difficult to manage. Thanks to that experience, Brian brings unique and fresh perspectives that will contribute significantly to new innovations from Vitech,” said Enrique Krajmalnik, Vitech’s President and Chief Executive Officer.

Most recently, Mr. Selvy was the Project Manager for the United States Extremely Large Telescope Program (US-ELTP). Brian has more than 19 years of engineering management experience in aerospace and ground-based astronomy, including serving as Director of Systems Engineering at World View Enterprises, where he built the systems engineering department responsible for stratospheric balloon earth observation platforms.

“Systems engineering and particularly the way model-based systems engineering is practiced needs to be modernized to meet the needs of today’s companies where time to market and high product quality are paramount to success,” stated Selvy. “Vitech is positioned to bring these solutions to the market.”

Mr. Selvy has a B.S. in aerospace engineering from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and a Master’s degree in systems architecting and engineering from the University of Southern California.
