The Founders:



GLENN COLEMAN - Chief Product Officer

Glenn has been involved in manufacturing for more than a quarter-century. His professional experiences have led to a skill set that is unique in the industry. Shop floor machining experience, from manual machining, to CNC setup, to shift supervision, to CNC programming, preceded twenty years in the CAD/CAM software industry. Having spent significant time on "both sides of the desk," Glenn is able to readily identify the true underlying machining problems facing today's manufacturers and design innovative solutions to those problems. At Surfware, he invented Step Reduction Milling (SRM), a multiple-tool roughing strategy that reduces programming time and machining time in the mold-making industry. He is the principal inventor (first-named) on the patent for the technology, which has been widely imitated in the industry.

Glenn is also the first named inventor on the patent for TrueMill®, the revolutionary patent-pending toolpath engine that dynamically manages a cutting tool's radial engagement with the material to dramatically reduce machining time. As Vice President of Product Design at Surfware, he designed the functional algorithm for the solution and performed extensive research on the technology, including mocking up proof-of-concept prototypes utilizing only basic CAD/CAM tools. Glenn has authored, or been interviewed for, several articles on this technology that have appeared in most major industry publications throughout the world. He has also spoken at several SME-sponsored trade shows.


Dr. EVAN SHERBROOKE - Chief Technical Officer

Evan has been leading the development of cutting-edge technology in CAD and CAM for nearly 20 years. At NTI, he developed advanced surfacing technology for the automotive and entertainment industries, and helped take the company through an acquisition by SDRC. At Revit, and later at Autodesk after Autodeskís acquisition of Revit, he helped design Revitís parametric site design system. Most recently, as Vice President of Product Development at Surfware, Inc., he led the design and implementation of the award-winning TrueMill® engine, IndustryWeek's Technology of the Year for 2005.

Evan is an internationally recognized expert in software architecture, software engineering, computational geometry, and algorithms. He has over 20 published papers in geometric modeling, software engineering, and computational geometry. He holds a Bachelorís degree in Mathematics, Masterís degrees in Computer Science and in Marine Engineering, and a Ph. D. in Computer Aided Design and Manufacturing, all from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.


TERRY J SORENSEN - CEO and President

Terry brings to Celeritive a broad range of operational experience, including executive management, marketing and sales, and design engineering. His career is distinguished by his ability to establish successful businesses by leveraging technical innovations and creatively meshing product development with strategic marketing.

Terryís professional career began as a design engineer at JBL (James B. Lansing) Sound, where he invented a novel magnet assembly that was integrated throughout the product line. His tenure there also included 4 years as the Marketing and Business Manager for the International Division. Moving to Avery-Dennison, he held the position of Unit General Manager for the Specialty Products Division, where he grew the business significantly. He is also the principal inventor of two adhesive technology patents. After Avery, he moved to the position of General Manager and COO of the Laboratory and Specialty Products Division of Osmonics, Inc., a leader in water purification products. While there he turned around several business units and product lines, and co-developed advanced proprietary fluorocarbon materials.

At Acuscape International, Inc., a medical imaging software company, Terry held the position of CEO and President, where he established key strategic alliances, secured investment funding, and established research programs with several teaching hospitals. Most recently he was CEO and President of Surfware, Inc., where he brought a focused professional orientation to all aspects of the organization, and established strong business and operational performance. Terry holds a B.Sc. in Physics from the University of California at Los Angeles and an MBA, specialized in Marketing and Finance, from California State University, Northridge.
