The company also stated that it does not anticipate any impact on its operations or its service to customers during the review process.

“I want to thank Benny for his tireless efforts over the last nine years from founding the company to making Velo3D the technology leader in the rapidly growing Additive Manufacturing industry,” stated Carl Bass, Chairman of the Board of Velo3D. “We are incredibly grateful to Benny for all his contributions. However, given the current environment, the Board believed a change would best position the company for future success. We look forward to continuing to benefit from Benny’s experience at the board level as we execute on our strategic technology and profitability initiatives.”

Kreger has served as the Executive Vice President of Operations at the Velo3D since December 2022.
