New CEO at MakerBot – Jonathan Jaglom Takes Over from Jenny Lawton

Stratasys has surprisingly announced some transitions within its executive team, appointing Jonathan Jaglom as new CEO of MakerBot.

Jenny Lawton, who took over from MakerBot’s founder Bre Bettis only last year, was promoted to executive vice president Special Projects for Stratasys and will report directly to David Reis, CEO of Stratasys.

MakerBot was acquired by Stratasys for over $ 400 million back in 2013. Jaglom held the position of general manager for Stratasys Asia Pacific Japan until the recent promotion.

“We see these organizational moves as part of the continued scaling and integration of MakerBot,” said David Reis, chief executive officer of Stratasys. “Leading the new product category of desktop 3D printing, MakerBot has experienced significant growth since inception, with sales expanding by more than 600 percent from 2012 to 2014. MakerBot has sold more than 80,000 units to date, while developing a significant brand.” Reis also noted that, “Jonathan Jaglom is bringing 10 years of experience as a key contributor to the outstanding performance and scaling of operations at Objet and then Stratasys and we believe he will be well-positioned to help MakerBot scale both operations and revenues.” Reis added, “As a leader in the 3D printing industry, we intend to build on our strong track record of execution and integration following our mergers. MakerBot is part of that integration and we are very excited to nurture the unique opportunity for growth in the desktop 3D printing industry with MakerBot’s leadership position.”
