Metal additive manufacturing solutions company AML3D has named former ESSI Group chief executive Ryan Millar as its new CEO. 

The new appointment is part of AML3D’s plans to expand its executive capabilities as it executes its growth strategy and positions itself with a leadership team to execute its next phase of development. 

Millar is equipped with 18 years of experience in executive leadership, including building and developing high-performance businesses with well-aligned teams while setting strong cultural standards throughout the organisations he has been a part of. 

During his tenure as ESSI’s CEO, the company expanded operations, specifically in its New Soil business and expanded its footprint into the United Kingdom. 

“I am pleased the Board has appointed Ryan as the new CEO. His deep experience and proven track record of success in working with start-up and scale-up companies, both locally and internationally, is a perfect fit for the Company as our growth momentum accelerates,” said Chairman Sean Ebert.  

“His expertise will add significant value and provide a structured approach to the next stage of growth. This appointment, coupled with the recent capital raising and landmark contract wins from global Tier 1 companies, places the Company in a strong corporate position and, more importantly, is well resourced to deliver on our growth aspirations, ” 

Andrew Sales, AML3D founder and current managing director, will now oversee AML3D’s strategically important commercialisation of research and development projects and provide technical and engineering support to the Sales & Marketing Teams and strategic partners. 

Sales will focus on AML3D’s multiple R&D projects, which are expected to create medium and longer-term growth drivers for the business. 

“I look forward to working with Ryan to help optimise the immediate and mid-term growth opportunities at AML3D. Bringing Ryan in as the new CEO also allows me to focus my strengths and efforts on developing new technology solutions and driving AML3D’s research and development projects to commercial outcomes,” Sales said.
