VMS Software Devastated By Untimely Death of CEO Kevin Shaw
VMS Software, Inc. today announced that CEO Kevin Shaw died October 14, 2022, after getting hit by a car while walking at a crosswalk in Acton, Mass. Shaw, a graduate of Tufts University, was 44 years old and leaves behind a wife and two daughters. David Sweeney, a company vice president and member of the VMS Software executive team, will serve as acting CEO.
“This is an unfathomable loss to even begin to understand,” Sweeney said. “Kevin was a friend to so many people, a loving father and husband, a beloved member of the New England technology community, and a great leader of our company. He was a rare person of intellect, wisdom, vision, compassion, humility, and humor who I am fortunate to have crossed paths with in my life. The idea of replacing him is out of the question – there was only one Kevin, and I miss him more than anyone can imagine.”
Family is holding a private funeral service, and there will be a public event celebrating Kevin’s life in early 2023.
