Israel-based 3D printer company Massivit Printing Technologies announces the appointment of Erez Zimerman as new CEO.
Effective immediately, Zimerman is stepping up from his role as vice president of sales to take on the CEO role, formerly held by Avner Israeli, who is retiring.
Before joining Massivit 3D, Zimerman held the role of vice president of marketing and business development Matan Digital Printers, later acquired by EFI; and Asia-Pacific marketing manager and product manager at Objet Geometries (which subsequently merged with Stratasys). He has also worked in various R&D and marketing management positions at Scitex Vision.
The company says its board of directors carried out a rigorous selection process, assessing internal and external candidates.
“That process, together with Erez’ dedication and proven results combined with his strong R&D background confirmed that he is the right leader to drive Massivit 3D to its next growth phase,” says Amos Michelson, chairman of the Massivit 3D board.
Erez’ main goal will be to pursue the growth and expansion strategy of the company. The move comes at a time of growth buoyed by a significant increase in demand for large-format 3D printing solutions, the company says.
“I am delighted to take on the position as CEO of Massivit 3D, particularly as it is a truly innovative and pioneering company in the exciting arena of large-format 3D printing,” Zimerman says. “I look forward to further leveraging the significant market opportunities that our solutions facilitate. I am also excited to support our growing community of forward-thinking print services, fabricators, and 3D service bureaus in their journey of business growth, incorporating cutting-edge, large format 3D printing services.”
