Kleiner has served in numerous leadership positions during his Stratasys career. Previously, he served as VP of Global Operations, and for the past three and a half years as the Global VP of Customer Success, where he led improvements in customer experience and oversaw an increase in revenues from services to all-time highs.

“This is an opportunity to structurally connect our Customer Success with our Operations and Supply Chain infrastructures, elevating our offering and addressing our customers’ production needs end-to-end,” said Amir Kleiner. “We are focused on our ‘Customer First’ principle and values, putting our customers in the center of everything we do.”

Kleiner will succeed Yossi Azarzar, who is stepping down to pursue family interests. He has been pivotal in leading Stratasys’ Global Operations, Quality, Facilities and Real Estate, and MIS teams – preparing the company for its transition to providing manufacturing-grade solutions. A gradual handover of responsibilities will begin immediately.

“Following a significant tenure in the field, Amir brings a customer perspective to our operations, strategically, across data security, e-commerce, quality, product risk assessment, and physical asset management, to leverage our manufacturing and operations to the benefit of our global installed base,” said Dr. Yoav Zeif, CEO of Stratasys. “I want to thank Yossi for his leadership and hard work driving our operations improvements during a critical period in the company’s transformation and wish him the best of luck moving forward.”
