Aleph Objects, Inc. Expands Executive Team in 2017

LOVELAND, COLORADO, USA – Aleph Objects, Inc., recently named the #1 fastest-growing privately held U.S. computer hardware company by Inc. Magazine, expanded its executive team. The company named a new President, Harris Kenny, and promoted its Chief Operating Officer, Steven Abadie, to an expanded role. The company’s founder and CEO, Jeff Moe, remains actively involved in daily operations.

 

“After a record-setting year in 2016, Aleph Objects is stronger than ever,” Aleph Objects, Inc. Founder and CEO Jeff Moe said. “We develop and promote talent and have a deep bench of leaders and contributors who will be vital in the company’s continued growth and success.”

Harris Kenny joined the company in January 2014. He started as Communications Manager, moved to Marketing Manager, then Vice President of Marketing before becoming President. Prior to joining the company, he worked in management and ERP consulting. He earned a MBA from the University of Denver Daniels College of Business and a BA in Economics from Pepperdine University. Kenny also serves on the Board of Directors of the Open Source Hardware Association (OSHWA.org).

“This company is changing the world,” Aleph Objects, Inc. President Harris Kenny said. “Our team is ready to continue scaling up, serving users, engaging the community, and exploring the frontier of Free Software, Libre Innovation, and Open Source Hardware.”

Steven Abadie joined the company in August 2011. He is the longest tenured employee and is currently serving in the position of Chief Operating Officer, where his role will expand. Prior to joining the company, Abadie was an artist, instructor, and early RepRap Developer. Abadie earned a MFA from the University of Georgia and BA in Visual Arts from Southeastern Louisiana University. He also contributed to Building Open Source Hardware by Alicia Gibb (Addison-Wesley Professional, 2014).

“In 2017 we plan to further prove that manufacturing can not only be achieved but flourish with Free Software, Libre Innovation, and Open Source Hardware,” Aleph Objects, Inc. COO Steven Abadie said. “We will further integrate our manufacturing and supply chain operations into a world-class Free Software Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) through collaboration with the Odoo Community Association (OCA).”

Despite the company’s rapid growth scaling manufacturing, supply chain, and operations, it closed another profitable year in 2016 with 2,782% three-year revenue growth. The company’s approximately 150 employees research, develop, manufacture, and support users in over 85 countries around the world, all from the company’s headquarters in Loveland, Colorado, USA. They offer phone and email technical support nearly 24/7, and run production seven days/week to keep up with demand for their products.

For the second year in a row, Aleph Objects was named the #1 fastest-growing company in Northern Colorado by BizWest and the #2 fastest-growing company in Colorado by Inc. Magazine. The company’s LulzBot line of desktop 3D printers have been described as “The Future of American Manufacturing” by Forbes and “at the forefront” by Intel IQ.
