Stratasys announces new MakerBot CEO

MakerBot’s new CEO will be Jonathan Jaglom, the
current general manager of Asia Pacific and Japan for parent company Stratasys.

Stratasys, which acquired desktop 3D printer
company MakerBot in 2013, announced that acting MakerBot CEO Jenny Lawton had
been promoted to the position of Executice Vice President of Special Projects
for Stratasys. Jaglom will be stepping into Lawton’s role, reports 3DPrint.com.

The executive changes will take effect on
March 1.

“Jonathan Jaglom is bringing 10 years of
experience as a key contributor to the outstanding performance and scaling of
operations at Objet and then Stratasys and we believe he will be
well-positioned to help MakerBot scale both operations and revenues,” CEO of Stratasys David Reis said in a statement.

Jaglom began his career in 3D printing at Objet Geometries in 2005. Objet,
an Israeli photopolymer 3D printing company, merged with Stratasys in 2011.

Omer Krieger, VP of APJ at Stratasys, will replace Jaglom as general manager of APJ, ARN reports.
