Markforged President and Chief Executive Officer Shai Terem shared, “Since joining Markforged, Mark has made a significant contribution to the company. With his support and leadership, Markforged went public through its merger with one in July 2021 and built a high-performing team. He leaves the company in a strong position to continue to execute on our strategic plan, and I wish him all the success in his future endeavours.”

Assaf Zipori, Markforged Senior Vice President of Strategy & Corporate Development, will assume the role of Acting Chief Financial Officer, a position that he previously undertook from November 2019 through March 2021, while the company conducts a search for a replacement.

“Assaf is well-prepared to support us in this key position, having previously served as Markforged’s Acting CFO and leading our financial team prior to the company’s merger with one. He is a pivotal part of our leadership team, and I’m extremely confident that the company is in good hands with Assaf temporarily assuming this expanded role,” Terem concluded.
