After six years at Temec, senior structural engineer Abdul Abro decided to trade in his umbrella and winter jacket and accept an offer from a firm in the San Francisco area.
Temec set up a lunch on October 14, 2016 to wish Abdul all the best for the future: former group leader Brian Gaffney came out of retirement for a couple of hours to host the event.
We are sad to see him leave: we will miss his quiet confidence, and during his time at Temec Abdul quickly became the go-to guy for STAAD modeling of complex structures.
Abdul noted that his decision to leave was not an easy one: in his words, Temec is a great place to work and has a wonderful team.
