Ben Bianco - Bio

I am originally from Wareham Massachusetts, a small town outside of Boston, near Cape Cod. I graduated from Plymouth State University in New Hampshire in 2017, Majoring in Marketing, with a Certificate in Professional Selling Skills. Upon graduation, I pursued a career in Finance as an Insurance Advisor for Mutual of Omaha. Wanting to dive into the world of technology, I relocated to Austin, TX in 2019 and soon after joined the MLC Family.

I currently work as a dedicated Additive Manufacturing Solutions Specialist focusing on the 3D Printing side of the business.
Outside of work I enjoy golfing, skiing, mountain biking and other outside activities.

Jake Fox  -  Bio

Originally from Alaska, I moved to Texas at the age of 18. I attended Texas Lutheran University to study Physics and was a 4-year starter for the football program. I finished with a double bachelors in Physics and Mathematics, then continued to study for my Master's in Physics at Texas State University. After 8-years of continuing education, I decided the Physics world wasn't for me, and ventured into sales.

I have been with MLC CAD Systems since May of 2022 as Austin's Territory Sales Representative. I focus mainly on SOLIDWORKS, a sophisticated 3D CAD tool for manufacturing and design.

In my spare time, I love anything outdoors with my dog, computers, and a good glass of whiskey."
