Blank has a diverse engineering and business background with a Master’s of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Stanford University and MBA from the University of Portland. After spending nearly twenty years delivering 2D printers for Tektronix and Xerox Corporation, Blank joined 3D Systems to lead all engineering and product delivery organisations and initiatives worldwide. After that, he served as COO for NanoVox/Vadient Optics.

Blank specialises in architecting and developing reliable and transformative products and solutions and scaling them from concept to commercial success. This history, combined with the positive impact Blank has made during his existing tenure at Evolve, is anticipated to ensure continuity in strong leadership and a seamless transition to CEO.

“I joined Evolve two years ago because I believe in the combination of our technology and people – and their unique abilities to address critical gaps in scaling Additive Manufacturing for production,” said Blank. “Evolve, and our STEP Technology, are at the beginning of an incredible journey to deliver immense value in manufacturing. My vision is that soon we will see STEP on factory floors right alongside injection molding machines.”
