With Autodesk flourishing, CEO leaves, but not to spend time with family

Since August 8, software giant Autodesk‘s stock has shot up 40.9%. Over the last year, that number is 95.8%. So when CEO Carl Bass announced today that he’s stepping aside, not “to spend more time with his family,” but with his robots, you kind of have to believe him. In his blog post about his departure from the company that produces ubiquitous professional design tools like Auto CAD, 3ds Max, Maya, and many others, he noted that he’d been discussing his departure with Autodesk’s board for a couple years.
