The latest appointments in additive manufacturing
The Association For Manufacturing Technology (AMT) has revealed that its Vice President and Chief Technology Officer Tim Shinbara, was recently named a Congressional Fellow by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) for 2020-2021.
Shinbara brings valuable industry experience to the committee, and is now in a position to strategically advise AMT members about Public-Private Partnership (PPP) opportunities and other federal initiatives that advance their business. He has already begun serving in the office of Senator Marco Rubio and the U.S. Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship, and is aiming to drive wider adoption of 3D printing technology within the manufacturing industry.
“We congratulate Tim on this prestigious fellowship and believe that his work with the Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship could not have come at a better time,” said Douglas K. Woods, President of AMT.
“Pressure has been growing in the United States for better alignment between government initiatives and private sector industries deemed critical to national security. These include more emphasis on PPPs, support of small- to medium-sized manufacturing businesses through R&D tax credits and other incentives, and stronger advancement of technology in the manufacturing technology industry.”
Titomic makes raft of changes to its leadership team
Melbourne-based metal 3D printer provider Titomic has announced a number of changes within its senior leadership team recently. Firstly, following the retirement of Chairman Philip Vafiadis, the company has appointed Dag Stromme and Humphrey Nolan to its board of directors. Stromee will provide a strong understanding of financial markets based on nearly 30 years of experience in successful private ownership and leading European and global financial institutions, including Morgan Stanley amongst others.
Nolan meanwhile, is a seasoned board member and CEO, with 30 years’ experience in driving strategic and operational change across industrial, logistics and distribution industries. He has held several senior positions within global logistics companies such as the P&O Group, and despite the appointment, he will continue in his roles as Chairman of both the Nolan Group and Tapex Group textile distribution companies.
“We are delighted to have attracted to Titomic the calibre of Mr Stromme and Mr Nolan as new Directors,” said Jeff Lang, Founder and Interim Executive Chairman of Titomic. “Both have a proven record of implementing company growth with their extensive international experience working with emerging technologies and commercial strategy in global markets. They also bring deep corporate and technical skills to the Titomic Board that will be invaluable as we advance our global expansion.”
Titomic has also appointed Dr Andreas Schwer, the former CEO of Saudi Arabian Military Industries (SAMI), as its new Chairman. Schwer boasts a 25-year career in the global defence, manufacturing, and aerospace industries, including founding SAMI in 2017, and leading it from greenfield operation to multibillion dollar company. Prior to his work at SAMI, he held several senior defence positions at both Rheinmetall International and Airbus, across their defence, space and helicopter divisions.
“I am honoured to accept the role of Chairman at Titomic and look forward to leading the company to capitalise on its considerable opportunities and further add shareholder value,” said Dr Schwer. “I believe Titomic’s industrial scale metal additive manufacturing and sustainable, green technology, has tremendous commercial potential to take metal manufacturing industries into the future.”
Dyndrite appoints VP of Business Development
Dyndrite Corporation, the Seattle-based software company, has announced the appointment of industry veteran Stephen Anderson as its Vice President of Business Development. In his new role, Anderson will engage with existing and prospective customers, and attempt to develop a new paradigm in 3D printing software. Utilizing over 20 years of experience driving industry software and hardware requirements, he will also work with customers to take full advantage of the advanced tools within the Dyndrite 3D geometry kernel.
Anderson has worked in a number of roles for British 3D printer manufacturer Renishaw, most recently as its US Additive Manufacturing Business Development Manager and Group Software Director. In the latter, he managed the delivery of much of Renishaw’s software portfolio across its industrial metrology and healthcare product lines.
“At Dyndrite we aim to get the best-of-the-best in the industry and Stephen is one of those,” said Harshil Goel, CEO and founder, Dyndrite. “We’ve been excited about Stephen since our very first meeting at AMUG, over three years ago. There he challenged us to impress him – we’re happy to see we made the grade. Having someone of Stephen’s caliber on the team means Dyndrite can be confident of its planned growth trajectory across the industry, as well as better serve our European and UK customers.”
New General Manager appointed at BEAMIT
Italian additive manufacturing service bureau BEAMIT has announced that Andrea Scanavini has joined its leadership team. The company has been expanding internationally in recent years, with the aim of transitioning from a single business into a conglomerate. According to BEAMIT, a global organizational, commercial and operational view is required to achieve this vision, and this led it to appoint Scanavini as its new General Manager.
In his new role, Scanavini will work to further strengthen and accelerate the company’s expansion plans, using technological and management skills honed through a number of roles in 3D printing. He founded the post-processing start-up PRES-X earlier in his career, and even created the first Italian center of control services for additive manufacturing. Scanavini is also a trained materials engineer with specialization in innovative materials, and has a master’s degree in welding engineering.
“I’m honoured to be chosen by the BEAMIT group for this important and strategic role. BEAMIT Group has a great vision and loves challenges,” said Scanavini. “I like them, too. I believe that the ability to overcome challenges and take goals is closely linked to the strength of the people. The strength of a company lies in the people who work there. In BEAMIT Group I found very motivated people and a cohesive and very strong group. That’s why I accepted the role. That’s why we’re going to win.”
