Voxel8, a multi-material digital manufacturing company transforming design and production of footwear and apparel, has appointed Friedrich von Gottberg as president and chief executive officer and to the board of directors. Voxel8’s systems revolutionise how athletic footwear, sports apparel, and smart textiles are designed, manufactured, and delivered.

Travis Busbee, co-founder and previous CEO, will assume the full-time role of chief technology officer, allowing him to focus on product development and the research and development of innovative new technologies, the company said in a media statement.

“We’re grateful to Travis for his dedicated leadership over the past two years, during which Voxel8 developed important new technologies, introduced our ActiveLab Digital Fabrication System, and won major new customers in the athletic footwear, sportswear and connected devices markets. At the same time, we are very pleased to welcome Gottberg as our new CEO. His strong business, technical, and leadership skills enable us to build on the progress we’ve made to date with our unique manufacturing platform,” Charles Shalvoy, executive chairman of Voxel8 said.

Prior to joining Voxel8, Fred was with Cabot Corporation for over 20 years. His most recent roles included senior vice president and president, Purification Solutions, vice president and GM new business segments, and vice president and global director of R&D. A chemical engineer by training, Fred has a PhD (ChemE) and MS in chemical engineering practice from MIT, and a BS (ChemE) from the University of the Witwatersrand in South Africa.
