David Reis, former chief executive at Objet, has assumed the role of chief executive officer; Erez Simha, former chief operations officer and chief financial officer at Objet, has assumed the role of chief operations officer (IL) and chief financial officer; Scott Crump, co-founder and former chief executive officer of Stratasys, has become full-time executive chairman of the board; and Elchanan Jaglom, formerly chairman of Objet, is serving as the full-time chairman of the executive committee.
