Markforged, Watertown, Massachusetts, USA, has expanded its board of directors with the nomination of Carol Meyers who is expected to begin serving immediately following the consummation of the company’s business combination with one later this summer.

Meyers currently serves as a venture partner at Glasswing Ventures, LLC, a venture capital firm that invests in technology startups. Previously, she served as Chief Marketing Officer of Rapid7, Inc., a cybersecurity analytics and automation company, as senior vice president and Chief Marketing Officer at LogMeIn, Inc. and senior vice president and Chief Marketing Officer at Unica Corporation.

Meyers is also said to have broad operational and board experience through her positions on the boards and audit committees of Zipwhip, Inc., a business-texting software and API provider, and, reportedly the world’s largest online provider of medical-grade hearing aids. Meyers also served on the board of directors of Emarsys eMarketing Systems AG and MineralTree, Inc. She holds a Bachelors in Science in finance from Fairfield University and is a graduate of the General Electric Financial Management Program.

“We are excited to welcome Carol to our Board of Directors as we focus Markforged on robust production and pursue our growth objectives,” stated Shai Terem, president and CEO of Markforged. “Her deep marketing expertise in go-to-market strategies and successfully scaling organisations will prove valuable as Markforged looks to grow and bring our platform to manufacturing floors around the world.”

Meyers’ nomination to join the board is said to be a manifestation of Markforged’s continued commitment to building a culture of diversity and inclusion. As the first female director of the company, she is also the first member with a focus on the marketing side of business operations.

Meyers commented, “Markforged and The Digital Forge are transforming manufacturing with great momentum, and I am excited to contribute to accelerating the Company’s growth and brand awareness. This is an exciting time for the team, and I look forward to working with everyone to achieve our goals.”
