David Oâ??Meara set to leave middleware dev in June

David O’Meara, MD of influential Dublin-based physics middleware developers Havok, has announced his intention to leave the firm in June this year.

O’Meara has been with Havok since 2003, initially as chief executive and later as MD after the acquisition of the company by Intel. He has yet to make any statements about his future plans.

"Havok is a true Irish success story and continually demonstrates what it takes to forge ahead in a competitive global business. It is synonymous with quality and innovation,” O’Meara said.

“I feel great about all the achievements and innovations at Havok over the past seven years and I consider myself fortunate to have worked with such a great team. The company is in good hands and its position in the global market is unmatched."

Havok chairman and Intel VP Renee James said a new MD will be appointed soon.

"David will leave the company in a very strong position and we thank him for the leadership he has shown," she added.
