GE Additive appoints new CEO

GE Additive has appointed Jason Oliver as CEO and Vice President, GE Additive.

Oliver joins GE from Dover Corporation and previously held leadership roles at Heidelberg Druckmaschinen AG and Jetrion, a digital label printer. 

‘I am thrilled to have Jason join our team,’ said GE Vice Chairman David Joyce. ‘We held a thorough search process and I’m confident we have the right leader to further develop GE Additive and establish the business as the leader in the industry.’

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 1,100 employees, expanded production capacity threefold, and invested more than $200 million in research and development.

‘What Mohammad has accomplished in one year is a business case for how to industrialize new innovative technologies utilizing GE resources across organizations and disciplines,’ Joyce added.
