MINNEAPOLIS—(BUSINESS WIRE)—December 18, 2007— Stratasys (Nasdaq: SSYS) today announced the election of John McEleney to its board of directors, effective December 17, 2007. Mr. McEleney is a director and the former CEO of computer aided design (CAD) industry leader SolidWorks, located in Concord, MA, which is a subsidiary of Dassault Systemes S.A. (Nasdaq:DASTY).
