“I am very pleased to welcome Gary to our executive leadership team at this pivotal point in our growth trajectory. Gary brings with him extensive expertise in helping scale companies of all sizes and stages of growth,” stated Dr Bent. “The board of directors and I have the utmost confidence in Gary as 6K’s new Chief Financial Officer. His leadership skills, strategic insights and financial acumen will be important contributors to 6K’s future success as we continue to grow our operations and establish domestic production capabilities for both Additive Manufacturing and battery materials.”

He was the Chief Financial Officer of Casa Systems, Inc., a provider of ultra-broadband solutions for mobile, cable, fixed and converged service providers, and helped lead the company through significant growth, culminating in an Initial Public Offering in 2017.

Prior to Casa System, Hall was the CFO of eCopy, a provider of document management solutions, which was sold to Nuance Communications in 2009. Hall was also the controller and then Chief Financial Officer of MatrixOne, a product life-cycle management software company, and he helped lead the company’s IPO in 2000 and the sale of the company to Dassault Systems in 2006.

“I’m honoured to join the team at 6K during such an important time in the company’s evolution,” Hall added. “The opportunity to contribute to the financial, investment and operational work already underway is exciting, and the possibilities of what 6K can achieve is truly inspiring. I look forward to partnering with not only the leadership team, but investors, board of directors, employees and customers on our journey of transforming the way performance materials are manufactured in an environmentally friendly way.”
