OREM, UTAH — Coreform LLC, the fastest-growing simulation software company in the United States, ranking #594 on the Inc. 5000 in 2020, has hired Greg Vernon as Director of Product Development and Dr. Karl Merkley as a software architect.

Greg Vernon is a mechanical engineer whose career with Honeywell Federal Manufacturing and Technologies spans more than eight years. In his time at Honeywell, Vernon was recognized four times for superior work in modeling and simulation. He has worked closely with Coreform over the past three years, helping to demonstrate the benefits of isogeometric analysis (IGA) in manufacturing environments, and has been an industry leader in driving the development and adoption of IGA.
