Founder, President and CEO
Steve Hechtman is the president, CEO, and founder of Inductive Automation. Prior to starting the company in 2003, Steve had 25 years of experience as a control system integrator, including at Calmetrics Company, a prominent control systems integration company in Northern California, which he co-founded in 1988 and became president/CEO of in 2000. After enduring years of frustration with expensive and impractical industrial software, he decided to create a better solution. He formed Inductive Automation, which has achieved phenomenal growth by bringing up-to-date technologies to the controls business with web-based, database-centric products, and sensible licensing models.
