New CEO Ultimaker

Ultimaker has appointed Jürgen von Hollen as Chief Executive Officer. As from January 1, 2021, he will replace Jos Burger, who will retire and join the Supervisory Board.

Jos Burger joined Ultimaker in 2014 and transformed the company from a start-up to a global player in the 3D printing industry. 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.

I’m tremendously proud of everything we achieved at Ultimaker in a short period of time. The transformation from a start-up to a company that now shapes how companies produce and manufacture is phenomenal. The last seven years have been intense, and given my age, it’s now time to retire from the CEO role. All the building blocks that will sustain future growth are there, and now it’s the best moment to hand over to Jürgen. Ultimaker continues to have a unique space in my heart, and I’m thrilled with the opportunity to serve on the Supervisory Board”, Jos Burger, CEO at Ultimaker.

Jürgen von Hollen, brings extensive international experience and a wealth of leadership in fast-growth technology industries. Prior to Ultimaker, Jürgen was President and CEO at Universal Robots, where he successfully grew the company and established it as the global market leader in collaborative robotics. Jürgen has held leadership positions at Bilfinger SE, Daimler-Chrysler Services, T-Systems, and Pentair.

I am very excited to be joining the Ultimaker team, who has developed a leading product, strong business model and has a very talented team. I believe this uniquely positions Ultimaker to take full advantage of a USD 35 billion 3D printing market and outgrow this market, which itself is expected to grow at 20% per annum. Ultimaker has the ability to enable dynamic innovation, flexible manufacturing and delivers great productivity improvements. Together, we want to transform organizations and Ultimaker is in a great position to grow as the leader”, Jürgen von Hollen, incoming CEO at Ultimaker
