Silicon Valley 3D printing startup Carbon has named former DuPont Co. CEO Ellen Kullman as its president and CEO.
She succeeds Carbon founder Joseph DeSimone who was named chairman, Carbon announced Nov. 21.
Kullman will also remain on Carbon's board, where she has served since 2016.
Carbon has been strengthening its leadership bench over the past several months to support the growth of the business.
As president and CEO, Kullman will lead the development and execution of short- and long-term strategies, while DeSimone is transitioning into the role of executive chairman to focus on growing mainstream adoption of the Carbon Digital Manufacturing Platform and "evangelizing" the company's vision to customers, partners, and the public.
"Joe [DeSimone] has built Carbon into the world's leading digital manufacturing platform, and as president and CEO of Carbon, I am excited to partner with Joe and build on the solid foundations he's put into place," Kullman said.
