Composites company Arris, based in the US, has appointed Riley Reese as its new CEO.

Reese previously held the role of CTO at the company, and co-founded composite additive manufacturing (AM) company AREVO. 

Arris has developed an end-to-end automated manufacturing technology that can be used to make portable electronics, footwear, sporting goods, transportation, and industrial brands.

“Our materials, design, and molding innovations have achieved a new level of scale with portable electronics products now shipping out of Taiwan,” said Reese. “This is just the start, and I’m looking forward to leading Arris in this next stage of growth.”
