New hires from XJet, Carbon and Black Buffalo

Kicking off this week’s new hires is Israeli 3D printer manufacturer XJet, which has appointed seasoned 3D printing executive Harry Danford to the new role of VP Sales North America. The move is part of the firm’s wider strategy to establish a presence in major regions and follows a slew of recent hires.

With a decade of business development and sales experience within additive manufacturing, Danford will support the company in growing the adoption of its NanoParticle Jetting (NPJ) technology in the North American market.

“XJet is the only company using direct material jetting with metal and ceramic materials,” said XJet CBO Dror Danai. “Our ceramic technology is well established, and our long-awaited metal is commercial, so now is the time to ramp up business.

“I’m delighted to have Harry on board to support that process, demonstrating the incredible benefits NPJ technology is bringing to manufacturing, and I know his wealth of experience, connections and passion will be a great asset.”

Meanwhile, industrial 3D printer manufacturer Carbon has appointed Phil DeSimone and Craig Carlson to the Office of the CEO, while Ellen Kullman transitions to the role of Chair on the company’s Board of Directors. As members of the Office of the CEO, DeSimone and Carlson will have shared corporate responsibilities.

DeSimone is Carbon’s Co-founder and Chief Product and Business Development Officer, and has built the firm’s most strategic partnerships and customer relationships, while Carlson is the firm’s Chief Technology Officer having scaled Carbon’s engineering and innovation operations since joining the firm in 2014. 

“As I take a step aside and into the position as Chair of the Board, I am prepared to provide guidance on the company’s growth strategy alongside the current Board members,” said Kullman. “I have full confidence that Phil and Craig are the right leaders to drive innovation, ensure customer success, and reinforce our company culture.

“They’ve collaborated for years on building the business and bring complementary strengths to lead the company through continued growth.”

Elsewhere, construction 3D printer manufacturer Black Buffalo 3D has hired Dr. Kunal Kupwade-Patil to the role of Chief Technology Officer. Having led multiple projects in advanced concrete technology at NIST, MIT, ORNL and 3D printing construction firm ICON, Kupwade-Patil will lead the development of the Black Buffalo 3D’s sustainable and alternative cementitious materials and its nano-engineered cementitious materials. 

“As we expand our global footprint, we’ll continue to lead by defining what’s possible with code-compliant materials, alternative cements, working towards carbon-neutral ink, and green concrete,” said Michael Woods, CEO and COO of Black Buffalo 3D. “Kunal was instrumental in building this industry, and he brings a level of expertise that will continue to keep Black Buffalo 3D at the forefront of new materials development and more sustainable building practices.”
