Sigma Labs, Inc. reports that Jacob Brunsberg, president and chief operating officer, is named chief executive officer of Sigma Labs. Mark Ruport, Sigma labs’ CEO will transition to the role of chairman of the board of directors, replacing John Rice who will continue to serve as a director.

Brunsberg is an accomplished additive manufacturing (AM) executive who has focused on strengthening the company’s in-process quality assurance product development and commercialization programs. 

“We are privileged that Jacob has accepted the position of CEO, bringing a deep understanding of the additive manufacturing industry and an impressive track record of achievements since joining the Company,” says Ruport. “He has been instrumental in transitioning our business model to enable distribution scale for a software only solution through a flexible OEM model with subscription-based pricing which will lower the barrier of entry for customers with multi-printer factories.

“It has been an honor to serve as CEO of Sigma Labs, and I want to offer my sincere thanks to our employees whose hard work and dedication have allowed us to achieve so much. I look forward to leading the Board of Directors and focusing on maintaining and building on our Tier-1 customer relationships,” concludes Ruport.

“Mark’s tenure and achievements as CEO positioned the company with first mover advantage supported by a strong financial foundation, which positions us to deliver on our goals,” Brunsberg adds. “He and the team have built a company with a portfolio of customers that are the leading 3D metal AM organizations in the world and led our transition to a business model focused on their success, recurring revenue, and profitability. I am thrilled to lead Sigma Labs into its next exciting phase as I believe its aggressive shift to software only for OEMs will allow us to continue to scale and accelerate the adoption of AM by setting the standard for In-situ Quality Monitoring and Analytics.”
