Ultimaker, the global leader in professional 3D printing, has appointed Jürgen von Hollen as Chief Executive Officer, replacing Jos Burger, who will retire and join the Supervisory Board. This change will be effective on January 1, 2021.

According to the most recent findings from the UK market intelligence firm CONTEXT, in the first half of 2020, strong demand from work-from-home scenarios allowed for Ultimaker to ascend to the top two position in global 3D Printer hardware shipment revenues. Ultimaker leads the Professional Price Class printer segment in the first half of 2020 with a 40% market share of hardware revenues.
Jürgen von Hollen brings extensive international experience and a wealth of leadership in fast-growth technology industries.
