3D Systems, Rock Hill, South Carolina, USA, has appointed Claudia Napal Drayton to its board of directors, effective immediately. Drayton currently serves as the Chief Financial Officer of Quantum-Si, a life sciences company focused on technology related to protein sequencing and genomics for the healthcare industry.

“We are delighted to welcome Claudia to our board of directors,” stated Chip McClure, chairman of the board of 3D Systems. “Her outstanding career as a finance leader, in roles ranging from public accounting to sophisticated medical devices and, in recent years, biotech companies, will prove invaluable to both our audit committee and our board in general.”

Dr Jeffrey Graves, president and CEO, added, “Claudia brings additional depth to our board in key areas of healthcare and biotechnology that will serve us well as we continue to accelerate our efforts in medical devices, orthopaedics and the increasingly exciting new arena of regenerative medicine.”

Drayton began her career in public accounting with Arthur Andersen before moving to medical device provider Medtronic. There, she held positions of increasing financial responsibility for her fifteen-year tenure, including Chief Financial Officer for both the Peripheral Vascular and the Integrated Health Solutions business units. In 2015, Drayton left Medtronic to assume the role of CFO of Nuwellis, and, more recently, of Quantum-Si.

These leadership roles have provided exposure to all aspects of a healthcare business, including international operations gained through her ex-patriot assignment in Europe with Medtronic. As an active public company CFO, Claudia is intimately familiar with all aspects of financial controls and SEC reporting, as well as the unique requirements of the global healthcare industry.

“It’s an honour to join the 3D Systems Board of Directors at this point in the company’s transformation,” stated Drayton. “I’m excited about 3D Systems’ history of innovation, and the success it has clearly demonstrated through its focus on the healthcare industry. The potential for 3D printing in medical device applications, as well as a tremendous range of biological applications within the human body, offer outstanding opportunities for growth and value creation as new solutions are brought to patients in need around the world.”
