AML3D Limited, Edinburgh, Australia, has appointed Noel Cornish as a Non-Executive Director and new chairman effective immediately. Sean Ebert has acted as the interim chairman since November 2021 and will remain on the AML3D Board as a Non-Executive Director.

The company explains that the appointment of Cornish follows an extensive search process which identified a number of highly qualified candidates. Cornish was selected for his extensive industry and governance experience and is believed to be ideally positioned to support the company’s goals.

“We are delighted Noel accepted the invitation to join AML3D’s board as chairman,” stated Ebert. “His deep experience of working in the metal manufacturing sector, both in Australia and Internationally in ALM3D’s key market of the USA, will add significant value to the AML3D board. It has been my privilege to have acted as the interim chairman and I wish Noel every success.”

Cornish began his career with a cadetship in 1969 with BHP Steel before assuming the role of Chief Executive of BlueScope’s Australian and New Zealand steel manufacturing businesses. He has also held a number of senior leadership positions, including president of NorthStar BHP Steel in Ohio, USA, and Group General Manager of South Australia’s Whyalla Steelworks.

His most current position was Non-Executive Director and chairman of IMB Bank, chairman of Hunter Valley Coal Chain Coordinator Limited and Non-Executive Director of University of Wollongong Global Enterprises. His previous roles include chairman of Snowy Hydro Ltd, Deputy Chancellor University of Wollongong and National President of Ai Group.

Cornish is a Fellow of the Australian Institute of Company Directors and was appointed an Order of Australia in 2017 for his business leadership and community services.

Cornish commented, “I am delighted to have been appointed chairman at such an exciting time for this business. ALM3D has proven, proprietary technology that is fundamentally disrupting industrial-scale metal manufacturing. AML3D’s Arcemy® and WAM® technologies are producing better components, in less time and importantly with better ESG outcomes for Tier 1 global clients. On behalf of the board, I would like to thank Sean for his steady leadership as interim chairman.”

Ryan Millar, AML3D CEO, concluded, “I look forward to working with Noel. His decades of experience within the metal manufacturing sector will be invaluable to AML3D as we focus on delivering our multi-phase growth strategy.”
