Jeffrey was the first fully dedicated member of the AM team within Oerlikon, having been engaged in AM since the late 1990s. As President of Oerlikon’s US AM business, he defines the strategic priorities for the US, in addition to having regional P&L responsibilities.

His vision is to see AM become a mature manufacturing technology that unlocks tangible value for customers through cost savings, and lead time reduction. Ultimately, he would want to combine both these aims with delivering advanced designs which improves system performance.
As an early member of Oerlikon AM, seeing our team grow into one of the best in the world has truly been exciting. The continued commitment of Oerlikon to drive industrialization of AM and be leading global player is a perfect fit for my personal vision of where I hope to take AM.
