Geomagic, a global leader in development of 3D software for a wide variety of industrial and other uses, is revamping its management team in the wake of recent growth and an acquisition.
The privately held company, which recently expanded into India, has promoted Tom Kurke to president in addition to his chief operating officer role.
Len Chamberlain, meanwhile, is now vice president of worldwide sales. He had been sales director.
And Joan Lockhardt is the new vice president of marketing. She joined Geomagic through the acquisition of the 3D design and haptics businesses from Boston-based Sensable.
Karl Matthews, who had been vice president of product management, is the new vice president of the Sensable group.
“I am incredibly pleased with the leadership team we have built at Geomagic, one with diverse talents and skills, and proven understanding of the challenges and the opportunity facing our users and the industry,” Ping Fu, Geomagic’s chief executive officer, said. “In the last three months, our teams not only delivered exceptional performance and value for Geomagic’s scanning and metrology solutions, they also have successfully integrated Sensable’s 3D modeling and haptic businesses, which resulted in growth for the Sensable business, good will with employees, customers and partners, and tremendous momentum. The new leadership team will position us for greater performance in the coming years as we develop new products that will democratize 3D capture, modeling and interaction. The challenge is no longer about access to data; it is about extracting intelligence from it and doing smart things with it to benefit humanity.”
Kurke has worked with Geomagic since 2009. Chamberlain joined the company in 2006.
