SEDNY ATTIA, Founder/President & CEO at TreoFab (

Sedny is been obsessed with putting 3D printing in the hands of the masses. The frequent requests for new prints and customized changes made Sedny realized there was a much better way to perform the CAD work and built his own customization tool. The first seed for Treofab was planted. Relying on two decades of engineering experience, and leading large teams of engineers he started building the 3d printing team of the future. Sedny has a strong track record of success in leadership and engineering such as designing the first voice over IP systems at Motorola to most recently running his own chip design firm designing custom chips for the Tesla Model S car.

TANNER LAVERTY, Founder/Strategy & Business Development at TreoFab (

Tanner helped found Treofab when Jon and Sedny approached him to “make a business” out of their technology. He was introduced to them because he has extensive business, finance and leadership experience in many fields, both for profit and non-profit. Evidence of Tanner’s success and reputation were bestowed upon him in 2010, when he was voted one of the “Top 40 under 40” dynamic, up-and-coming business leaders published by the Sacramento Business Journal. Tanner is applying his understanding of these business principles by creating the Treofab business model.
