Jagtar Narula 

“I want to thank Jagtar for his dedication and leadership as we have executed on a transformational plan to refocus our business portfolio on additive manufacturing, driving improved growth and operating performance, while significantly strengthening our balance sheet. We have made tremendous progress on all facets of our business plan and I appreciate the important contributions Jagtar has made during his tenure with the company. I wish him continued success in the next chapter of his career. I am also delighted that Wayne will assume the role of interim chief financial officer. Wayne is a veteran finance leader who is uniquely positioned to serve in an interim capacity, having played a significant role in the earliest stages of our transformation process at 3D Systems in 2020. I believe that Wayne will ensure we do not miss a step as we move through this transition period.”

Prior to that, he held a variety of financial leadership roles including head of finance, corporate controller and chief accounting officer. Pensky began his career with Arthur Andersen & Co, where he served 14 years. He earned a Master of Business Administration from the University of California at Berkeley.
