Airwolf 3D Hires Mark Mathews as President: Former Toshiba America Business Solutions CEO
As competition heats up and dozens of new 3D printer manufacturing companies begin popping up, it takes strong, experienced leadership to compete. Airwolf 3D, a Southern California-based 3D printer manufacturer, understands this, and this morning announced the hiring of a new president.
Mark Mathews, the former president and CEO of Toshiba America Business Solutions, Inc, a $750 million dollar company, with 3000+ employees, has been hired to lead the two year old Airwolf 3D, as they look to expand there business, and grow their infrastructure.
“Mark Mathews will take Airwolf 3D to the next level,” Airwolf 3D founder and chairman, Erick Wolf stated “We’ve spent the past two years establishing the company as a serious innovator and manufacturer of advanced commercial 3D printers. His extensive knowledge of sales and marketing strategy, product development, supply chains and operations will help propel us into the forefront of our industry. Most importantly, he will be seeking investment partners to accelerate our business expansion by allowing us to grow our core business as well as diversifying our revenue streams.”
As President Mathews will report directly to Wolf, and be responsible for the company’s sales and marketing, operations, and finance. He will also use his experience to help raise additional investment capital for the company’s future expansion.
“Working with an early stage high-tech company is a unique opportunity,” Mr. Mathews said. “The 3D printing industry is like the Wild West: It’s chaotic, it’s raw and it’s fun. Best of all, I have the opportunity to use my 20 years of high-tech business-to-business expertise to develop and execute a plan for rapid growth in what’s expected to be a $12 billion industry by 2025. I’m working with owners who are pushing the boundaries of innovation and, more importantly, share the same values and vision I have. Given all that, Airwolf 3D is the perfect fit for me.”
A couple of weeks ago, Airwolf 3D unveiled their latest 3D printer, the AW3D HDx, one which surprised many within the industry, as it is capable of printing at extremely high temperatures, making it ideal for printing with Polycarbonate and Nylon filaments. Every one of Airwolf’s 3D printers are manufactured on American soil, in the company’s 15,000 square foot Costa Mesa, California facility. As the market expands, the company will need the experience, that Mathews, who has been employed in the tech industry for over 20 years, has acquired.
