Kevin Shaw, CEO of a Boston-based software business, died on October 14, 2022, after being struck by a vehicle crossing the street in Acton, Massachusetts. Shaw’s family includes his wife and two little girls.
According to the firm, Shaw passed away on October 14. According to his LinkedIn profile, Shaw graduated from Tufts University and previously worked for 21st Century Software and Rocket Software before joining VMS Software in July 2021.
David Sweeney will serve as interim CEO, vice president, and VMS Software leadership team member. Sweeney stated, “This is an incomprehensible loss even to begin to imagine. Kevin was a friend to many people, a devoted father and husband, a cherished part of the New England technology community, and a tremendous leader of our organization. I am lucky to have touched contact with such a unique individual of intelligence, sagacity, vision, compassion, modesty, and humor. There was only one Kevin, and I miss him terribly.”
The corporation has announced that there will be a public celebration of Shaw’s life in the early months of 2023, following a private funeral service for his family.
