December 8, 2017 – Raise3D, the designer and manufacturer of 3D printers, has announced the appointment of Diogo Quental as their new global CEO, effective January 1, 2018. Diogo will succeed Edward Feng, the current CEO and co-founder, who will assume the coordination of the newly created Strategic Committee.
“This is the perfect time for Raise3D to do this change. We are proud for what we achieved so far with the current level of organization, but we needed a different type of governance to scale up the full operation”, said Raise3D CEO Edward Feng. “Our decision was to make a clear separation between the on-going operation that will be managed by Diogo, and the strategic direction of the company which will be coordinated by me.”
Graduate of business administration at ISAG-European Business School, and with an MBA from INSEAD in 2003; Diogo joined the 3D printing industry in 2011 and has over 25 years of experience in several different countries and cultures, structuring new businesses, managing people, and projects.
“Despite having joined Raise3D only a few months ago, the experience of belonging to this team is one of the most rewarding I ever had. Three global offices, in 3 very different cultures, with amazingly talented teams contribute to the goal of raising the standards”, said Diogo Quental. “I am very honoured with this new position and I do feel the responsibility of it. But I also know that there’s a long road of improvements ahead and that more comprehensive solutions still have to be offered to Corporate Customers.”
Edward Feng, currently CEO, will dedicate his time to the strategic coordination of Raise3D, to support Diogo, and to engage closely with key Partners and Investors to ensure adequate support in the scale-up of the company globally.
Raise3D designs and manufactures top performing 3D printers specializing in 3D printing solutions for corporate users. With their headquarters in California, Rotterdam and Shanghai, Raise3D establishes the proximity to offer the best approach to each market.
