The company has appointed Steve Nigro, currently senior vice president of imaging and printing, as head of 3D printing business in the soon-to-be-formed HP Inc.
The unit will focus its attention on printers and personal computers, operating as part of HP Inc.
Dion Weisler, who is tipped to be HP Inc CEO after the split, said in a note: "As our first 3D printing product nears commercial availability, I’m creating a new 3D Printing business group and center of excellence.
"With that in mind, I have asked Stephen Nigro to turn his entire focus to 3D Printing, continuing to report to me."
"When we announced our plans to separate, we knew that 3D printing would be a key area of innovation and growth for HP Inc. Our company is positioned perfectly to take advantage of our sophisticated intellectual property and know-how to transform industries and power the next industrial revolution."
Weisler added that Stephen Nigro is a talented engineer with lab and business experience, with the ability to transform ‘technologies into great products’.
After Stephen assumes responsibility of the 3D Printing business, Enrique Lores will look after the Imaging and Printing and Solutions business in EMEA region.
"He will focus on establishing a leadership position for HP Inc., in both the prototyping and production 3D market by delivering a strong portfolio of technology, products, and services to drive the market."
"In collaboration with Shane Wall and the CTO/Labs team, the Printing organization, and ecosystem leaders, Stephen will drive a sharp focus on ensuring HP Inc. realizes this tremendous opportunity and establishes us as the clear market leader in this space."
