ROCK HILL, South Carolina, August 4, 2022 – 3D Systems (NYSE:DDD) announced today that Michael Turner will join the company as Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, effective August 29, 2022. He will report to President and CEO, Dr. Jeffrey Graves, and will lead the company’s global finance organization, including accounting and controllership, financial planning, tax, treasury, and investor relations.
Michael brings an exemplary technical background to the CFO role that includes public accounting experience as well as financial leadership roles of increasing responsibility at both public and private companies. Currently, Michael is Chief Financial Officer of Innovative Chemical Products (ICP), a leading developer and manufacturer of specialty coatings, adhesives, and sealants serving major industrial and construction end markets. Prior to that, Michael was a finance executive at the publicly traded chemical company Albemarle Corporation, where his roles included business unit Chief Financial Officer, Vice President of Corporate FP&A, and Finance Leader for the company’s global Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) technology implementation. Michael’s 20-plus-year finance career also includes financial leadership positions as divisional and corporate controller at FMC Corporation and Polypore International, respectively.
“I am delighted to have a well-rounded and seasoned financial leader such as Michael join 3D Systems,” said Dr. Graves. “Michael possesses deep expertise in driving strong financial controls and governance and in implementing technology-based strategies to transform finance organizations. His background will prove invaluable as we continue to invest in our corporate infrastructure to support the attractive growth trajectory we envision both for our company and the additive manufacturing industry as a whole.”
“In addition,” noted Dr. Graves, “I want to express my sincere gratitude to Wayne Pensky for his service as our interim CFO. I greatly appreciate Wayne’s leadership during this period of transition, as well as the support that he will provide to Michael to ensure a seamless transition in the weeks ahead.”
