Embedded Executive: Richard Lind, CEO, IAR Systems

Richard Lind is about seven months into his role as CEO of IAR Systems, one of the leaders in embedded development tools.

One of his biggest competitors has a huge advantage—their tool is free! Or is it really? That’s the question I asked of Richard, and he had a very interesting response in this week’s Embedded Executives podcast.


Richard Nass’ key responsibilities include setting the direction for all aspects of OSM’s ECD portfolio, including digital, print, and live events. Previously, Nass was the Brand Director for Design News. Prior, he led the content team for UBM’s Medical Devices Group, and all custom properties and events. Nass has been in the engineering OEM industry for more than 30 years. In prior stints, he led the Content Team at EE Times, Embedded.com, and TechOnLine. Nass holds a BSEE degree from NJIT.
