Rock Hill, SC—3D Systems Corporation announced key management changes to accelerate the company’s growth strategy. Effective immediately, industry printing veteran Vyomesh Joshi (VJ) was appointed president and CEO. VJ is a visionary who was pivotal in changing Hewlett-Packard’s printing business from the ground up.
Joshi succeeds interim president and CEO Andy Johnson, who will continue in his role as 3D Systems’ executive vice president and chief legal officer.
“We are pleased to announce VJ’s appointment as president and CEO of 3D Systems,” said Wally Loewenbaum, chairman of 3D Systems’ board of directors. “VJ’s significant experience scaling and strengthening technology-driven businesses, his expertise in product development and innovation, and his proven track record of operational excellence make him the ideal candidate to lead our company into its next era.”
As a seasoned leader, in his new position Joshi will leverage the heritage of 3D Systems to invigorate its business. Joshi is known for being a transformational and highly engaged leader with noteworthy experience in developing and managing a broad product portfolio. While leading HP’s $26 billion printing business, he was responsible for doubling the printing business operating profits during an 11-year period.
“I am incredibly excited about the future of 3D Systems. We have a tremendous opportunity to help customers take advantage of the era of manufacturing transformation, including mass customization,” said VJ. “While the company has a strong history in place, it is clear that we need to develop new and innovative products with unprecedented quality and service levels to drive sustainable growth and profits.”
“On behalf of the entire board,” added Loewenbaum, “I want to thank Andy for his dedication and leadership as interim president and CEO.”
