SSOE Group’s Todd Alsdorf to Join Autodesk CEO for Live Webcast on Customer Experience

PORTLAND, Oregon, June 6, 2018 – SSOE Group (, a global project delivery firm for architecture, engineering, and construction management, is proud to announce that Todd Alsdorf, Senior Vice President of Innovation, will be joining Autodesk CEO Andrew Anagnost for his employee webcast “Andrew On Air”. The webcast, viewed by an estimated 2,000-3,000 Autodesk employees online, will take place June 6, 2018 from 3-4 PM.

Joining Todd for a 1-hour customer panel will be Adam Ellison, Co-Founder and CEO of San Francisco-based robot development startup Modbot, and Greg Howes, CEO of Portland-based fabricator CutMyTimber. The webcast will be a conversation format as Andrew talks to each of them about their role and company, along with their experience in working with Autodesk. In addition to covering the benefits of Autodesk products, they will also discuss ways to improve the customer experience in an employee Q&A session at the end of the webcast, in which the live audience of over 100 Autodesk employees, along with those viewing online, will get the chance to have their questions answered. After the webcast, there will be a reception to toast the grand opening of Autodesk’s Portland office.

With a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Colorado State University, Todd has over 20 years of industry and leadership experience. In 1998, he started with Pacific Rim Design, becoming co-owner of the firm a mere 2 years later. Under his guidance, the firm, which merged with Evergreen EDC in 2002, grew from 10 employees to over 300. He attributes this growth to fostering ownership and pride in the staff, while helping to build the type of strong leadership that gave him a solid foundation during the ups and downs of the industry.

Todd joined SSOE as former CEO of Evergreen EDC after the firms merged in December 2012. Working out of SSOE’s Portland office, recently named this year’s All-Star Employer among Oregon Companies, he currently serves on SSOE’s Board of Directors and as the Senior Vice President of Innovation, while also heading up SSOE Greenfield Ventures, Inc.—an entity created to focus on the research and development of innovation from within the company.
