AML3D Limited, headquartered in Edinburgh, Australia, has announced the appointment of Sean Ebert as Managing Director and Pete Goumas as President – US Operations, with immediate effect. The announcement is reported to follow a four-month review held by the company’s board.
Ebert is an Executive Director of the company and has acted as Interim CEO since June 2023. His extensive knowledge of AML3D’s operations and strategy are said to make him well suited to executing on AML3D’s growth aspirations. “I joined the Board of AML3D in 2019 and have a great deal of excitement for AML3D, and have been involved with the evolution of the company’s growth strategy,” Ebert stated. “That strategy has been refocused on scaling up our presence in the US market, especially in support of the US Defence and US Navy submarine industrial bases. We have the right strategy at the right time and, with the appointment of Pete as President of US operations, the right US team to optimise the huge growth opportunities we have in the US defence market. Also, in time, other major global defence markets and amongst our Global Tier 1 Corporate clients across oil & gas, marine and aerospace.”

Goumas holds a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Akron in Ohio and Master of Business Administration from Lynchburg College, Virgina and has relevant senior executive experience in both public and private US companies. In the newly created role of President of US Operations, Goumas will be responsible for leading the execution of all aspects of AML3D’s US growth strategy, foremost of which includes rapidly growing the company’s position within the US Defense manufacturing sector.
Most recently, he was Vice President, Operational Strategy at Nasdaq-listed BWX Technologies, a supplier of nuclear components and services to the US government. Prior to this he held a series of roles which included managerial responsibility for welding engineering, materials science and quality assurance functions supporting activities in nuclear energy and related fields.
“Coming from a background of welding and materials science I am excited and impressed by the Additive Manufacturing technology systems and proprietary IP we have at AML3D,” Goumas commented. “I have a proven track record, in the US, of delivery of multi-party strategic partnerships supporting the introduction of new technologies and products. I have significant experience and relationships within the US defence industrial base, especially within the US Nuclear submarine programme. I have great confidence that AML3D’s US operations will be an engine for significant growth, so much so that I have committed to invest my own money in AML3D shares to have real skin in the game.”
Goumas has been granted the relevant clearances to provide support to the US Navy’s nuclear submarine programme as part of his responsibilities.
