3D printing giant Stratasys has today announced the appointment of a new chief executive officer, Yoav Zeif. With extensive executive management experience, Zeif will officially join Stratasys in the leadership position on February 18, 2020. Until then, Elchanan Jaglom will continue to act as interim CEO—he will also maintain his role as Chairman.

Zeif will take up the role of CEO at Stratasys to guide the company into its next phase of growth, leveraging his experience in leadership and global operations. Zeif’s resume is impressive. He served as Senior Vice President of Products and Marketing at crop-protection company Makhteshim (now Adama Ltd.). In 2013, he moved to Netafilm, the world’s largest micro-irrigation company, as the President of the Americas, Head of Product Offering and Chief Commercial Officer. Since 2018, he has served as a partner at McKinsey & Company’s New York office.

“Stratasys has led the expansion of the 3D printing industry for more than three decades, but the potential impact of this transformative technology across all industries is just beginning,” said Jaglom, Stratasys’ interim CEO since Ilan Levin resigned in 2018. “Yoav brings the strong combination of leadership and global operational experience to fuel our next stage of growth. We are confident that as CEO he will advance our offering and further our vision to reshape the world of design, prototyping and manufacturing.”

Zeif’s particular expertise is in sales, product, R&D and manufacturing operations in complex and competitive environments. These skills will be well suited to Stratasys, as Zeif leads the company forward into an increasingly industrialized AM landscape.

“Stratasys pioneered and continues to power the additive manufacturing landscape, enabling companies across virtually all industries to build and improve their businesses through 3D printing technology,” commented Zeif. “In particular, thanks to its outstanding innovations and application engineering, it is clear that Stratasys is poised not only to reshape product development and prototyping but also to transform supply chains and manufacturing through efficiency and personalization. I am excited to be joining the company and its talented and dedicated teams around the world at such a pivotal time.”
