GE Additive has appointed Jason Oliver as CEO and Vice President, GE Additive. He joined GE on January 1, 2018 and will report to David L. Joyce, GE Vice Chairman.
As CEO, Oliver will lead the GE Additive operations including Concept Laser, Arcam and the recently acquired simulation software company GeonX. Oliver joins GE from Dover Corporation and brings significant commercial and technical experience both in the U.S. and abroad. Prior to Dover Corporation, Oliver held leadership roles at Heidelberg Druckmaschinen AG and previously co-founded Jetrion, a digital label printer.
GE Additive leader Mohammad Ehteshami will transition to an advisory role focusing on additive product strategy until his retirement later in 2018. Under his leadership, GE Additive integrated the operations of Concept Laser and Arcam, grew their combined workforces from under 450 to more than 1100 employees, expanded production capacity threefold, and invested more than USD 200 million in research and development. He helped to launch new machines (including Project Atlas and Project Hustle) and oversee the establishment of new facilities in Montreal, Canada; and Munich, Germany; and the expansion in Lichtenfels, Germany.
