"The combination of ANSYS and Apache has given us the most comprehensive electronics engineering simulation software in the industry. I want to personally thank Andrew for being part of the ANSYS team for these past several years, and for the contributions that he individually and the entire Apache team has made, and will continue to make, towards our success. We wish Andrew the best as he moves onto his next exciting endeavor," Cashman stated.

"The Apache business is well-positioned to continue its record of delivering results for our customers and our stockholders," said Andrew Yang, Apache president. "Working closely with Walid and the Apache leadership team, we will ensure that we continue to execute on our strategic plan for the business, and prepare for my transition out of the day-to-day business of leading Apache.
