Stratasys, a provider of 3D printers and related materials that serves a wide variety of industries with offices in Eden Prairie, Minnesota and Israel, announces the retirement of CEO David Reis, effective at the end of June.
During his tenure as CEO, Reis led the successful merger and integration of Stratasys and Objet, and oversaw the strong growth that has established Stratasys as an industry leader in 3D printing. Reis also initiated the company’s recent transformation, as it developed a broad, solutions-based business model that targets new manufacturing applications across key vertical markets.
Reis plans to retain his position as executive director of the Stratasys board of directors.
Before joining Stratasys Reis had held the top spot at Israel-based Objet since 2009. Previously, he was CEO at NUR Macroprinters Ltd., a wide-format printer manufacturer that was acquired by Hewlett-Packard in 2007. Prior to joining NUR, he served as CEO of ImageID and of Scitex Vision, a manufacturer of wide-format printers, which was also later acquired by HP.
Effective July 1, dd, a member of the board of directors and the executive committee of Stratasys, will assume the role of CEO.
Levin has served as a member of the board of directors of Objet since 2000 and served as president and vice chairman of the Objet board prior to the Stratasys-Objet merger in 2012.
