Jason Oliver Appointed Head of GE Additive 

GE Additive has appointed printing industry veteran Jason Oliver as CEO and Vice President, GE Additive. As CEO, Oliver will lead the GE Additive operations including Concept Laser, Arcam and GeonX, reporting to David L. Joyce, GE Vice Chairman. Oliver joined GE on January 1.

Oliver joins GE from Dover Corporation and brings significant commercial and technical experience both in the U.S. and abroad. Prior to Dover Corporation, Oliver held leadership roles at Heidelberg Druckmaschinen AG and previously co-founded Jetrion, a digital label printer.

“I am thrilled to have Jason join our team,” said GE Vice Chairman David Joyce. “We held a thorough search process and I’m confident we have the right leader to further develop GE Additive and establish the business as the leader in the industry.”

GE Additive leader Mohammad Ehteshami will transition to an advisory role focusing on additive product strategy until his retirement later in 2018. Under his leadership, GE Additive integrated the operations of Concept Laser and Arcam, grew their combined workforces from under 450 to more than 1,100 employees, expanded production capacity threefold, and invested more than $200 million in research and development. He helped to launch new machines (including Project ATLAS and Project Hustle) and oversee the establishment of new facilities in Montreal, Canada; and Munich, Germany; and the expansion in Lichtenfels, Germany.

“What Mohammad has accomplished in one year is a business case for how to industrialize new innovative technologies utilizing GE resources across organizations and disciplines,” Joyce added.
