Stetten, Switzerland, 10 May 2023 – Exentis Group AG, provider of the only 3D technology platform worldwide that enables industrial large-scale manufacturing, today announces the appointment of Eric Bert as President Exentis Americas.
In this newly created position, Eric Bert will be responsible for establishing the Exentis 3D technology platform in North America, with a focus on the USA as the world’s largest and particularly fast-growing market for additive manufacturing.
Eric Bert has more than 35 years of disruptive technology management experience, including 15 years in senior commercial and leadership roles in the additive manufacturing industry. He most recently served as Senior Vice President – Commercial at Inkbit. Prior roles included Chief Operating Officer of 3DMEDiTech, a personalized medical device manufacturer, North American President of Arcam, a GE Additive company, and Senior Vice President of Global Arcam EBM Sales. He also served as Senior Vice President of Sales at Stratasys, an additive manufacturing equipment supplier, where he built a sales organization and led the company’s high growth period.
Eric Bert commented on his reasons for joining Exentis: “During my career in the additive manufacturing industry so far, I have never come across a company with such great potential as Exentis. Large-scale additive manufacturing of industrial parts or clean room applications, paired with a completely free choice of materials and no need for any post-processing, is unique. With its superior 3D technology platform offering significant cost-benefit advantages, Exentis will clearly tap into demand currently supplied by traditional manufacturing technologies, going forward. Joining the dynamic Exentis team and being part of this exciting high growth journey is a great opportunity.”
Dr Gereon Heinemann, Chief Executive Officer of Exentis Group AG, commented: “The internationalization of our business is progressing well. We are now taking the next step by expanding into the USA, the world’s largest additive manufacturing market. Eric’s formidable technical background, proven sales and business development experience in the additive manufacturing and MedTech industries, and strong leadership capabilities make him the ideal executive to lead the expansion of our rapidly growing business in the US market.”
As a first step, Exentis will do both, building a sales and service network in the USA and entering into cooperation agreements with various local distributors via its newly formed entity Exentis North America, Inc., initially scaling up its office and facilities footprint in the Boston area.
