June 2, 2021
Metal Additive Manufacturing start-up Mantle, San Francisco, California, USA, has appointed Paul DiLaura as Chief Commercial Officer. DiLaura brings over twenty years of experience building and leading teams that serve the manufacturing industry, most recently at Carbon and Dassault Systèmes.
“We are changing the way manufacturers bring their products to market with a major innovation for the tooling industry. Paul’s leadership will help ensure our customers and partners realise the full extent of this value,” stated Ted Sorom, CEO and co-founder. “Paul brings extensive experience in the domains of product strategy, marketing, sales, and customer success, which will help as we extend our reach beyond our already successful customer relationships.”
DiLaura spent four years at polymer AM company Carbon, where he helped to bring three generations of AM machines and new materials to fruition, and proved instrumental in bringing industry-first AM applications to volume production. He also helped the company to develop and expand a network of global production partners, as well as its own sales and engineering teams.
Before joining Carbon, DiLaura spent over ten years at Dassault Systèmes, where he most recently served as Manager Director of North America. In this role, he was responsible for all customer and partner relationships, marketing and customer service in the United States, Canada, and Mexico. He is a graduate of the University of Michigan.
DiLaura commented, “I am excited to help manufacturers reinvent how they create their critical tooling with Mantle’s TrueShape technology. I joined Mantle because of our unique ability to make precision parts with trusted tool steels at a fraction of the time and cost of traditional manufacturing or other 3D printing processes. I look forward to working with manufacturers and partners to realise this value and to help evolve our technology.”
