September 21, 2021

Sigma Labs, Inc, Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA, has announced the appointment of Jacob Brunsberg as senior vice president. Brunsberg – who will be responsible for leading the company’s strategic relationships, product management and marketing programmes – joins after holding senior positions at General Electric Additive, the Additive Manufacturing division of General Electric (GE), over the past four years.

Most recently, Brunsberg had management responsibility for strategy, development, commercialisation and overall business performance for General Electric’s Binder Jet Technology unit. From 2017 to 2019, he served as Senior Managing Director of the Central Region, tasked with helping establish the US sales infrastructure for post-acquisition integration of several Additive Manufacturing technology companies – including Concept Laser, Arcam and GEonX – into the newly formed GE Additive business entity.

Prior to GE, Brunsberg worked for the American Roller Company in sales leadership and product marketing positions, where he was responsible for the development and oversight of growth strategies, focussed on advanced welding, cladding, thermal spray, and Powder Metallurgy technologies across a number of industrial markets. Brunsberg holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Material Science and Engineering from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Mark Ruport, President and CEO of Sigma Labs, stated, “Jacob brings a strong base of additive industry management and sales experience to Sigma Labs. He is well known as an innovator and business builder and is exactly the type of individual we need to round out our superb management team.”

“Jacob’s history of driving revenue and profitability, plus his expertise in commercialising and bringing complex technology portfolios to market will be beneficial to Sigma Labs as we further grow market awareness and revenue,” Ruport added.

“I could not be more pleased to be a part of Sigma Labs”, said Brunsberg. “Our mission of setting the Additive Manufacturing in-process quality standard is important to manufacturers and OEMS, as well as the entire industry. I’ve been following Sigma Labs for some time and believe its unique technology and commitment to quality present a tremendous growth opportunity. I look forward to contributing to the company’s ongoing success.”
