3D Systems, Rock Hill, South Carolina, USA, reports that its Board of Directors has named Dr Jeffrey A Graves, as the company’s new President and CEO, effective May 26, 2020. Graves brings seventeen years of CEO experience and replaces Vyomesh Joshi (VJ), who announced his retirement in February.

Graves joins 3D Systems from MTS Systems, a leading global supplier of high-performance test, simulation and measurement systems, where he served as CEO for the past eight years. During his time at MTS, Graves reportedly led a company transformation to clearly define and deploy a focused business strategy and streamlined operating model.

Prior to MTS, Graves was CEO of C&D Technologies, a global provider of energy storage products for seven years, and served as CEO of KEMET Electronics, a manufacturer of high-performance capacitor solutions, for three years.

He currently serves on the Board of Directors of Hexcel, a leading global manufacturer of advanced composite materials, and Faro, a company that develops and manufactures solutions that enable high-precision 3D capture, measurement and analysis across a variety of industries. He holds a Bachelor of Science, Master of Science and Doctorate in Metallurgical Engineering and Materials Science.   

“I am incredibly excited about the opportunity at 3D Systems,” stated Graves. “Digital manufacturing will play a key role in the transformation of manufacturing, and 3D Systems is uniquely positioned with its portfolio of additive manufacturing systems, material science, software and domain expertise to help companies benefit from this transformation.”

Charles (Chip) McClure, Chairman of the Board of Directors, commented, “Jeff’s financial and operational discipline and precision is a core reason we chose him for this role, has shown that he knows how to organise and focus a business portfolio and streamline an operating model to deliver differentiated solutions to markets.”
