Isabel Sanz
3D Category Business Manager
Isabel Sanz is a mechanical engineer from the Universidad Politecnica de Valencia in Spain and the RWTH Aachen in Germany who complemented her studies with a master's in project management. She started her career at HP 10 years ago as an R&D engineer in the large format printing business. In the 3D printing business, Isabel set up and managed the initial WW benchmark facility for MJF customers and later transitioned to develop applications and post-processes as an advanced technical consultant. In November of 2018, she moved to San Diego as the team lead of the AMS application engineers and developed new applications that scaled to production with several customers. She's currently working as a 3D category business manager for the Americas region, looking for new and innovative ways to develop the adoption of additive manufacturing and evangelizing the transformation of production to additive manufacturing.
