Doyle moved from the role of founding advisor at Zeda (as PrinterPrezz) to an operational role as vice president of Business Development, supporting its growth after completing its $38 million Series B financing. He was also noted as instrumental in the partnership between Zeda and Uniformity, formed in 2021. He will continue to work closely with Uniformity Lab’s leadership in an active advisory capacity.

“I am excited to join Zeda full-time and to deploy additive manufacturing capabilities and business strategies into traditional manufacturing and product companies in highly regulated and high-value industries,” stated Doyle. “Zeda is not only at the forefront of bringing life-changing medical device advancements to those who need them the most worldwide but also has exceptional manufacturing capabilities acquired from Vertex Manufacturing in the aerospace and defense industries. I have always believed there are significant opportunities to combine additive manufacturing and semiconductor technologies to reduce costs and improve outcomes. I have worked with the incredibly talented and visionary Zeda founders. I’m excited to be part of the Zeda operational team to drive its mission further and accelerate its growth trajectory.”

Shri Shetty, CEO, added, “Geoffrey has a unique combination of Additive Manufacturing knowledge and an engineering mindset with years of experience in the venture space for both fast-paced startups and large international companies. His skill set will be instrumental for Zeda’s long-term growth prospects.”
