Our team has always prioritised our company culture and, with Jessie overseeing people operations and helping bolster our internal best practices, I’m confident we can continue to expand without losing the culture we’ve worked so hard to build.”

Lockhart added, “Velo3D is at a big inflection point and I believe there is endless potential for the company due to its innovative technology, growth across new industries, and extensive adoption with some of the most innovative companies in the world. I have already met with many Velo3D employees across various levels and their excitement and optimism is felt across the entire company. I am excited to be part of the team and work with every employee around the world to ensure their unique needs are met, we all stay true to our company values, and succeed as an organisation.”
