3D Systems, Rock Hill, South Carolina, has announced that Dr Joe Zuiker will join the company as executive vice president, Engineering & Operations, effective December 12, 2022, while Dr Brent Stucker will move into the position of Chief Technology Officer – Additive Manufacturing. Both of these positions report directly to Dr Jeffrey Graves, president and CEO.

Dr Zuiker has expertise across a variety of industries including oil & gas, power generation, aerospace, and advanced test systems. He brings a base of experience encompassing new product development and introduction, project management, supply chain, and operational execution for highly complex engineered products, and is a Certified Lean Six Sigma Master Black Belt. His prior roles included design leadership at General Electric’s Energy Division, General Manager of GE’s Hydro Business Unit, General Manager of GE’s Gasification Technology Unit, Director of Technology for Halliburton’s Sperry Drilling, and, most recently, VP of Engineering, Operations and Order Fulfilment at MTS Systems.

Zuiker holds a Doctorate in Mechanical Engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, a Master of Science degree in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Cincinnati, and a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

“I’m delighted to welcome a leader of Joe’s caliber to our organisation,” stated Dr Graves. “His experience as a seasoned engineering design and integrated supply chain leader positions him very well to lead our efforts as we introduce a record number of new products over the next few years, and reinforce our position as a leader in the Additive Manufacturing industry. This is particularly important at this point in time as our customers increasingly introduce 3D printing technology into their factory environments.”

Graves continued, “Complementing Joe’s appointment as leader of our engineering, supply chain, and operations organisation, I am very pleased to appoint Dr Brent Stucker as our Chief Technology Officer for Additive Manufacturing. As a renowned industry expert in Additive Manufacturing, Brent joined us in 2021 and quickly established himself as a thought leader in his role as Chief Scientist. Elevating him to the CTO role will provide an even greater opportunity to introduce groundbreaking technologies into our additive solution set.”
