San Francisco, October 3, 2023 – Fictiv, the operating system for custom manufacturing, today announced the appointment of Andy Sherman to General Manager, USA.
This appointment comes in response to customer demand for on-shore and hybrid manufacturing solutions to mitigate supply chain risk and improve resilience, speed, and agility in the face of rising geo-political, regulatory, and resourcing industry challenges.
In his seven-year tenure with Fictiv, Sherman has played an integral role in optimizing Fictiv’s global supply chain. He will lead Fictiv’s US-based manufacturing operations in this new role, overseeing all localized strategic sourcing, quality, logistics, and manufacturing engineering functions.

He was named a 2021 Pros to Know by Supply & Demand Chain Executive. Sherman holds B.S. and M.S. degrees in Industrial & Systems Engineering in addition to his EMBA degree.
“To succeed in today’s challenging climate, manufacturing companies need robust supply chain options that serve prototyping to production needs onshore in the United States,” said Sherman. “I’m thrilled to help shape the future of Fictiv’s US-based manufacturing operations and provide our customers with end-to-end new product development capabilities at unprecedented speeds here at home.”
