Schwartz Appointed Markforged CFOApril 7, 2021
Mark Schwartz has been appointed chief financial officer of Markforged, taking over from interim CFO Assaf Zipori, who will now lead the company’s corporate development and strategy. Schwartz brings extensive experience as a public company CFO, leading capital-markets transactions and serving on management teams at high-growth hardware-manufacturing, software-as-a-service and artificial-intelligence companies.
“Markforged’s combination of software, hardware and materials makes it uniquely positioned to capture growing-market opportunities and empower manufacturers to create more resilient and agile supply chains,” says Schwartz. “This is a pivotal time in Markforged’s trajectory, and I am excited to work with the team to accelerate growth and execute on the company's strategic plan so that customers can build anything they imagine.”
Schwartz will serve an integral role as Markforged completes a merge and becomes a public company later in 2021.
“Mark Schwartz is a seasoned financial executive with deep, relevant experience and a track record of driving results and accelerating growth,” says Shai Terem, Markforged president and chief executive officer. “He’s a strong addition to our leadership team, and his experience and track-record as a public-company CFO will be invaluable as we prepare to become a public company. I look forward to working with him and am confident that his leadership will play a crucial role in fulfilling our vision to reinvent manufacturing and execute for our customers.”
