Stratasys owned, desktop 3D Printer manufacturer MakerBot today announced the resignation of CEO Jonathan Jaglom and the appointment of company president Nadav Goshen as his successor. Over the last two years, Jaglom and Goshen have worked closely together leading MakerBot’s reorganization and strategic shift. Jaglom will be returning to Israel to spend more time with his family.
“I joined MakerBot two years ago to lead the turnaround of the company and I’m proud of what we’ve been able to achieve in such a short time. We have defined a new strategic direction, completely revamped the company’s quality control processes, and successfully launched a new lineup of products,” said Jonathan Jaglom, CEO of MakerBot. “Having put the company on a new track and put in place a new organizational structure, I believe that now is the right time for me to step back and spend more time with my young family. Nadav Goshen has been crucial in defining MakerBot’s new direction and he is the ideal candidate to lead the company on its new path.”
“I’m excited to continue working towards our vision of putting a desktop 3D printer in every classroom and on the desk of every designer and engineer,” said Nadav Goshen, president of MakerBot. “MakerBot today is in a much stronger position and I would like to thank Jonathan for his contributions. I look forward to leading the company and continuing to build out our 3D printing solutions for professionals and educators.”
Goshen has 15+ years of experience leading turnarounds at tech companies and his expertise lies in defining new products and business models, as well as growing digital ecosystems. Prior to joining MakerBot, he led private equity investments in mobile and tech, served as CEO for a fast growing ad-tech company and in various other C-level executive roles at tech companies.
Under Jaglom’s leadership, MakerBot has gone through a cultural shift to prioritize product quality and listening more closely to customers. As a result, MakerBot recently introduced new 3D printing solutions for professionals and engineers that have been very well received. MakerBot’s new 3D printing solutions offer engineers and designers a faster and more effective way to develop ideas and educators a better way to integrate 3D printing in the classroom.
