About the guests

Kunle Campbell

Randy Altschuler is the Chief Executive Officer. Prior to co-founding Xometry, Randy co-founded and was Executive Chairman of CloudBlue, a leading provider of recycling services for electronic equipment. Drura Parrish is the President of Xometry Supplies. Drura joined Xometry as part of the acquisition of MakeTime, where he was founder and CEO.



Xometry was founded in 2014 and has experienced rapid growth due to the company’s emphasis on customer service, manufacturing expertise, and a revolutionary instant quoting platform.

In 2018, Xometry acquired MakeTime, another leader in the manufacturing-on-demand industry, and now the two companies combined have the largest partner network in the industry.

In January 2019, Xometry launched Xometry Supplies with the goal of simplifying the custom manufacturing supply chain and ensuring we are best serving our customer base. To support this new business venture Xometry acquired Machine Tool & Supply of Jackson, TN. With this most recent acquisition, we have facilities in Maryland, Tennessee, and Kentucky.

Mastercard: SCA Update for EU Retailers


Attention Online retailers in Europe.
A new payments standard, known as SCA or Strong Customer Authentication will come into force in September 2019.

Mastercard research shows that up to 75% of e-commerce merchants in Europe are potentially unaware of this coming into effect. SCA is a new regulatory requirement that is designed to help retailers and issuers make digital payments more secure. The challenge is to create or keep a frictionless check-out experience for online shoppers.

SCA will allow for biometric technology and dynamic passwords to create a more secure and improved online shopping experience.
Mastercard’s Identity Check is fully compliant with SCA requirements and facilitates shopping experiences we can all trust, allowing us to securely pay online using features such as our fingerprint.

To find out more on Identity Check visit the Mastercard website here: https://newsroom.mastercard.com/eu/
