3D printing systems manufacturer ExOne has recently announced changes in its executive leadership team. James L. McCarley joined the company as Chief Executive Officer while previous CEO S. Kent Rockwell is transitioning to the role of Executive Chairman.
Jim McCarley previously led the operations of RTI International Metals, Inc. as its Executive Vice President. RTI is a producer and supplier of titanium mill products and fabricated titanium and speciality metal components and was acquired by Alcon Inc. in July 2015.
S. Kent Rockwell, who will continue to lead ExOne’s strategic planning and execution, stated in a press release: “Our Board is committed to continuing our mission to bring binder jetting to the industrial production floor. We are pleased to add Jim as CEO, bringing his extensive experience in both operations and sales, particularly on the direct metals side of our business where we are strategically focused over the next several years. This is the perfect time to add Jim to our leadership team, having just finished a record second quarter and first half of 2016. His role as CEO is a critical component of our succession plan and will broaden and strengthen our management team, as I move to Executive Chairman and focus more on strategy.”
ExOne also announced that Hans Sack, who was appointed President in March 2015, will be retiring at the end of August.
Kent Rockwell commented: “We are thankful to Hans for his contributions to the Company, particularly with respect to his focus on global operations. We wish Hans the very best as he retires from ExOne to pursue other interests.”
