PASADENA, Calif. (Sept. 5, 2023) — Bluebeam, a developer of solutions and services for architecture, engineering and construction professionals worldwide and brand subsidiary of Nemetschek Group, has added two new talents into its executive suite.

  • Usman Shuja joins Bluebeam as CEO and will also serve as Nemetschek group chief division officer of the Build & Construct Division.
  • Miekie Liebenberg will join Bluebeam as chief operating officer (COO).
  • Jon Elliott has chosen to pursue personal endeavors after serving as CEO of Bluebeam for more than six years. He will remain with the company in an advisory capacity to ensure a smooth transition.

Most recently, Shuja led Honeywell’s Connected Buildings, one of Honeywell’s largest software businesses, as vice president and general manager. He originally joined as chief commercial officer for Honeywell Connected Enterprise, where he was responsible for organic and inorganic growth of its software portfolio. Before joining Honeywell, Shuja worked for the Boston Consulting Group, IBM and Dell and was a founding member of the AI unicorn, SparkCognition. 

Liebenberg is a global leader, starting his career in South Africa managing complex operations across many different companies and organizations, including in the telematics industry. He then spent four and a half years with Mercedes-Benz Leasing in China, as well as car2go China as CEO. After moving to the U.S. in 2019, he was most recently with Daimler Truck North America leading Operations and Sales Support.

Last year, Bluebeam announced a milestone in its global business transformation with the release of Bluebeam Cloud, a web and mobile offering that extends Revu and Studio workflows for collaboration anywhere. Visits
