Amir Kleiner, a seasoned member of the Stratasys family with 12 years of dedicated service, is set to oversee the company’s Global Operations, MIS, and Quality teams.

“Following a significant tenure in the field, Amir brings a customer perspective to our operations, strategically, across data security, e-commerce, quality, product risk assessment and physical asset management, to leverage our manufacturing and operations to the benefit of our global installed base,” noted Dr. Yoav Zeif, Stratasys CEO.

“I want to thank Yossi for his leadership and hard work driving our operations improvements during a critical period in the company’s transformation and wish him the best of luck moving forward.”
