Reporting directly to the early stage company’s founder and chairman Erick Wolf, Mr. Mathews will run the business side of the company including sales and marketing, finance, and operations as well as raising investment capital to accelerate Airwolf 3D’s rapid growth and building the infrastructure to support it.

During his tenure at Toshiba America Business Solutions, a $750 million company with more than 3,000 employees in North and South America, Mr. Mathews oversaw the strategic direction and operations of Toshiba’s office equipment and document solutions business. A 20-year veteran, he is credited with leading Toshiba through a period of extraordinary growth in which it consistently won industry accolades.

“Working with an early stage high-tech company is a unique opportunity,” Mr. Mathews said. “The 3D printing industry is like the Wild West: It’s chaotic, it’s raw and it’s fun. Best of all, I have the opportunity to use my 20 years of high-tech business-to-business expertise to develop and execute a plan for rapid growth in what’s expected to be a $12 billion industry by 2025. I’m working with owners who are pushing the boundaries of innovation and, more importantly, share the same values and vision I have. Given all that, Airwolf 3D is the perfect fit for me.”

“Mark Mathews will take Airwolf 3D to the next level,” Mr. Wolf added. “We’ve spent the past two years establishing the company as a serious innovator and manufacturer of advanced commercial 3D printers. His extensive knowledge of sales and marketing strategy, product development, supply chains and operations will help propel us into the forefront of our industry. Most importantly, he will be seeking investment partners to accelerate our business expansion by allowing us to grow our core business as well as diversifying our revenue streams.”

Mr. Mathews earned a BA from the United States Air Force Academy (he served as an officer for six years), a master’s degree in civil engineering from Columbia University and an MBA from the University of California, Los Angeles Anderson School of Management. Among his many interests is his involvement with Habitat for Humanity where he serves on the Board of Directors.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
