3D Systems, Rock Hill, South Carolina, USA, has announced changes to the company’s leadership structure. Reji Puthenveetil, who currently serves as Executive Vice President of 3D Systems’ Industrial Solutions business, will take on expanded responsibilities as Executive Vice President, Additive Solutions and Chief Commercial Officer. It was also announced that Menno Ellis, who has led the company’s Healthcare business since its creation in 2020, and Andy Johnson, Chief Corporate Development Officer and Chief Legal Counsel, will leave 3D Systems to pursue other leadership opportunities.

Dr Jeffrey Graves, president and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “We are grateful to both Menno and Andy for their many contributions to the company. Since my arrival in the summer of 2020, both leaders have been instrumental in helping focus and reshape the company, as we transformed into the two distinct business units we have today. I am confident that both executives will continue to find great success in their future leadership endeavours.”

In his new role, Puthenveetil will be responsible for all of the company’s commercial operations, which will include Sales and Marketing, as well as the Application Innovation Group, across both the Industrial and Healthcare business units. 3D Systems will continue to operate two business units: Healthcare Solutions – comprising both Medical Devices and Dental markets – and Industrial Solutions, which spans numerous industrial market verticals, from aerospace and defence to semiconductor, automotive, energy, and consumer markets.

“This simplification of our commercial operations will support optimisation of our go-to-market strategies, reduce operating costs, and enhance our ability to respond quickly to changes in the market as momentum continues to build in the adoption of 3D printing in production facilities around the world. Importantly, by continuing to operate in two business units, we will retain a strong focus on the unique needs of both our Healthcare and Industrial customers, an approach that has been very well received in the market,” Graves concluded.
