Markforged Holding Corporation announces a realignment of its technology teams as part of its ongoing mission to accelerate its product roadmap and further enhance distributed manufacturing, the company says. As part of a planned transition, David Benhaim, co-founder and chief technology officer, is stepping down from his role as chief technology officer, effective immediately, and will remain with the company in an advisory role through July 8, 2022.
As previously announced in August 2021, John Howard joined the company as the vice president, Engineering, with more than 30 years of experience in engineering and product design with prior leadership roles, including at Amazon and Apple. Howard now leads a fully integrated engineering team, combining hardware, software and materials development efforts under one leader to scale operations and enhance collaboration and innovation.
“It’s been my great honor, and a privilege, to be a part of the Markforged team since its founding in 2013. I will always look back fondly on helping to build this company and working alongside such a fantastic group of talented and motivated people,” says Benhaim.
“David’s contributions helped set the stage for Markforged’s future success and we are grateful for all of his efforts. We continue to enhance our management team, and we have an incredibly strong and deep engineering team in place,” says Shai Terem, president and CEO. “Markforged is in an exceptional position to execute on our growth strategy.”
