Massivit 3D Printing Technologies (Lod, Israel), a leading provider of large-format 3D printing solutions, has announced the appointment of Erez Zimerman as its new CEO. Zimerman is stepping up from his role as Vice President of Sales to take on CEO responsibilities formerly held by Avner Israeli, who’s retiring. Before joining Massivit 3D, Zimerman was Vice Presdient of Marketing & Business Development at Matan Digital Printers, later acquired by EFI, and Asia Pacific Marketing Manager and Product Manager at Objet Geometries (which subsequently merged with Stratasys). He’s also worked in various Research & Development and Marketing Management positions at Scitex Vision, and holds a BSc in Electrical Engineering, and an MBA from Bar Ilan University.
The Massivit Board carried out a rigorous selection process, assessing internal and external candidates. “That process, together with Erez’ dedication and proven results, combined with his strong R&D background, confirmed that he’s the right leader to drive Massivit 3D to its next growth phase,” said Amos Michelson, Chairman of Massivit 3D’s Board of Directors. Zimerman’s primary goal will be to pursue the growth and expansion strategy of the company. The move comes at a time of sustained growth, buoyed by a significant increase in demand for large-format 3D printing solutions, the company added.
“I’m delighted to take on the position of CEO of Massivit 3D, particularly as it’s a truly innovative and pioneering company in the exciting arena of large-format 3D printing,” Zimerman said. “I look forward to further leveraging the significant market opportunities that our solutions facilitate. I’m also excited to support our growing community of forward-thinking print-service providers, fabricators, and 3D service bureaus in their journey of business growth incorporating cutting-edge, large-format 3D printing services.”
