Since 1996, Dr. Russ Henke has been president of HENKE ASSOCIATES, a San Francisco Bay Area high-tech business & management consulting firm. The number of client companies for HENKE ASSOCIATES now numbers more than forty.


Having earned his PhD from the University of Cincinnati, Henke was named a Distinguished Alumnus of UC in 1989. During his corporate career, Henke operated sequentially on "both sides" of MCAE-MCAD and EDA, as a software user and as a CAD vendor. He's a veteran corporate executive from Cincinnati Milacron, SDRC, Schlumberger Applicon, Gould Electronics, Automation Technology Products (ATP), and Mentor Graphics Corporation.



Henke is a Fellow of the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME) and served on the SME International Board of Directors.

Dr. Henke is also a member of the IEEE and a Life Fellow of ASME International.



In April 2006, Dr. Henke received the 2006 Lifetime Achievement Award from the CAD Society, presented by CAD Society president Jeff Rowe at COFES2006 in Scottsdale, AZ. In February 2007, Henke became affiliated with Cyon Research's select group of experts on business and technology issues as a Senior Analyst.
