Evolve Additive Solutions, provider of industrial 3D printing solutions, welcomes a new era in its leadership by appointing Jeff Blank as its new Chief Executive Officer (CEO), following a successful two-year term served by former CEO and industry veteran Joe Allison.

Under Joe's leadership, Evolve achieved significant product advancements and early commercial growth. Joe joined Evolve as CEO in early 2022 and guided the company through numerous, pivotal milestones including the appointment of Jeff Blank as the company’s President and COO, chartering him with delivery of hardware, software, and materials products. Evolve celebrates these achievements as Joe transitions to become Chairman of its Board of Directors. 

Jeff brings a wealth of experience to his new role, beginning with a strong product development background in 2D printing, compounded by notable success as an engineering and operations executive in the 3D printing and additive manufacturing space. This, combined with the significant positive impact Jeff has made during his existing tenure at Evolve, ensures continuity in strong leadership and a seamless transition to CEO.  

“I joined Evolve two years ago because I believe in the combination of our technology and people – and their unique abilities to address critical gaps in scaling additive manufacturing for production,” said Jeff Blank. “Evolve, and our STEP Technology, are at the beginning of an incredible journey to deliver immense value in manufacturing. My vision is that soon we will see STEP on factory floors right alongside injection molding machines.” 

The Evolve organization looks forward to the future under Jeff's leadership and remains committed to advancing its solutions for manufacturing. 

Blank is an industry veteran with experience in both 2D and 3D printing spanning over three decades. He has a diverse engineering and business background with a Master’s of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Stanford University and MBA from the University of Portland. After spending nearly twenty years delivering 2D printers for Tektronix and Xerox Corporation, Jeff joined 3D Systems to lead all engineering and product delivery organizations and initiatives worldwide. After that and just prior to joining Evolve, he served as COO for NanoVox / Vadient Optics. Jeff specializes in architecting and developing reliable and transformative products and solutions and scaling them from concept to commercial success.
