Sintavia, LLC, Davie, Florida, USA, has announced two new additions to its leadership team to support the firm’s manufacturing activities and customer growth. Rick Clark will now assume the role of Vice President of Operations, while J Louis Schlegel IV has been appointed Global Vice President of Sales.

Rick Clark joins Sintavia with a decade of production leadership experience, including in operations management at Eaton Corporation, where he was responsible for the production team and operations at Eaton’s North Charleston facility. Clark will now take responsibility for efficiently managing customer production builds and will also work to establish process flows and procedural infrastructure for Sintavia’s ‘digital factory of the future’, set to open in 2018.

J Louis Schlegel IV, Sintavia’s new Global Vice President of Sales, has a proven record in metal Additive Manufacturing (3D Printing), Sintavia reported. In his new role, Schlegel will be responsible for the leadership of the Sintavia sales team and development of new business opportunities, and will provide Sintavia’s vertically integrated AM supply chain solutions to Fortune 500 industrial companies globally.

Doug Hedges, Sintavia’s President and COO, commented, “Rick and J’s experience with OEMs and advanced manufacturing technologies has made these appointments a crucial addition to the future of Sintavia. Their experience will help shape the direction of Sintavia’s digital factory, which will represent an entirely new way of approaching metal component production for OEMs in precision industries.”
