As you recall, we have reported that Scitex had invested in the Rehovot, Israel based company Objet Geometries Ltd. (www.objet.co.il) and it currently holds 19% of the company’s shares. Objet designs and sells 3D solid-modeling device based on proprietary inkjet technology, connected to CAD front-end systems.
Not un-expectedly one of our ExScite member David Ofek [email protected], has been appointed the company’s CEO. David was the Australian business manager of Scitex and later came back to Israel to become the director of corporate marketing. A couple of years after he was promoted to corporate VP of marketing, he was appointed STE’s president. He left Scitex after the merger with Creo.
In addition, Dror Danai [email protected] has been appointed director of international business development of Objet in Rehovot. Dror was marketing manager at the CTP group in Scitex Israel, and later moved to STE as the director of indirect channels.
