In the 3D printing industry, one or more individuals in additive manufacturing firms contributes significantly to the industry that others offer recognition. As this industry continues to gain acceptance, it’s important to acknowledge the contributions of these and other individuals who contribute to its growth.

The judging panel also honored Herzog’s achievements in the field of laser melting with metals that have contributed to additive manufacturing as a groundbreaking technology.

The nomination process for 2015 CEO of the Year
Each year, “European CEO” asks a panel of internal judges to identify entrepreneurs who they think will shape the future. The publication then ranks these leaders by the number of votes they receive from panel members. In 2015, three finalists were nominated for top CEO in additive manufacturing.
The award recognizes not only Frank Herzog’s entrepreneurship, but also his dedication and innovative contributions to additive manufacturing.
