“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.
