"Sophia's experience at Cvent during its growth from a startup to a public company will be invaluable to Xometry as we continue to expand both domestically and internationally. With Sophia's leadership, we want to continue to attract and retain an exceptionally smart, motivated, and diverse group of people."
"I'm excited to join Xometry," MacDonald said. "The company has grown quickly by focusing on serving its customers and manufacturing partners. I look forward to helping the company embrace a purpose-driven culture while remaining focused on quality and performance, as we drive growth to the next level."
