‘I'm excited about the opportunity to join Ansys, a company leading the industry in engineering simulation innovation and quality,’ DeBriyn says in a press release. ‘I am proud to be a part of this world-class community of talented people.’

Nicole Anasenes, Ansys’ CFO and senior vice president of finance, says: ‘Kelsey has an impressive and accomplished background in finance, strategy, industry and banking. Her expertise in communicating company strategy and financial information to capital markets transparently and credibly will benefit Ansys as we continue to position the company for its next chapter of growth.’
