I started in the AM industry close to 10 years ago, in Stratasys' Corporate Development team, where I've led numerous acquisitions and minority investments in the AM space. I've gained experience across segments - printers, materials, services, software, etc.. From Corporate Development, I took a senior role in the Product organization, allowing me to get more in depth into product roadmap development, partnerships development and customer relationship building.
For the last 2.5 years, I have built Elem Additive, Xerox's 3D Printing arm, from the ground up - taking the ElemX printer to market and landing marquee accounts such as the US Navy and Siemens. We were also the first ones to successfully deploy a metal printer on a Navy ship, printing real parts at sea for immediate usage.
Since leaving Xerox in October 2022, I have been advising several startups (as well as a couple larger firms) in the AM space regarding their strategy, product roadmap, investor relations and other areas.
