3D Systems announced that Dr. Joe Zuiker will join the company as executive vice president, engineering and operations, effective December 12, 2022. In addition, industry veteran Dr. Brent Stucker, who joined 3D Systems in 2021, has been appointed chief technology officer (CTO)-additive manufacturing (AM). Both positions will report directly to Dr. Jeffrey Graves, 3D Systems president and CEO.
Zuiker is a seasoned global executive with technical and operational expertise across a variety of industries, encompassing new product development and introduction, project management, supply chain, and operational execution for highly complex engineered products.

“I’m delighted to welcome a leader of Joe’s caliber to our organization,” says Graves. “His experience as a seasoned engineering-design and integrated-supply-chain leader positions him very well to lead our efforts as we introduce a record number of new products over the next few years. This is particularly important at this point in time as our customers increasingly introduce 3D printing technology into their factory environments.”
On Stucker’s promotion: “As a renowned industry expert in AM, Brent joined us in 2021 and quickly established himself as a thought leader in his role as chief scientist,” offers Graves. “Elevating him to the CTO role will provide an even greater opportunity to introduce groundbreaking technologies into our additive solution set.”
