Griffin to Oversee the Direct and Channel Sales Teams at Leading Autonomous Mobile Robot Provider
Seegrid Corporation, the leader in autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) for material handling, today announced that David Griffin has joined the company as Chief Sales Officer (CSO). Working alongside a team of experienced executives who have been with Seegrid for a large part of the mobile automation provider’s growth to date, Griffin will lead the company’s growing sales organization—a team that serves the company’s target market of logistics, ecommerce, and manufacturing customers.
Griffin brings more than 25 years of executive experience overseeing complex hardware and software products at leading technology companies. Most recently, he served as an executive in Honeywell’s Connected Enterprise business. Prior to that Griffin held senior positions at Radiant Systems, NCR and ARCA Worldwide. As CSO, Griffin will be responsible for leading Seegrid’s strategic sales and revenue growth teams across all lines of business and channels, including customer satisfaction.
“We’re excited to welcome David to Seegrid and our executive leadership team,” said Jim Rock, Seegrid’s Chief Executive Officer. “David’s deep experience in our industry, as well as in SaaS technologies, complements Seegrid’s exponential growth and exciting plans for the future—he will play an instrumental role as we rapidly and strategically scale our mobile automation solution product and services portfolio to businesses across the supply chain.”
Seegrid continues to set and achieve ambitious growth goals. The company has nearly doubled its headcount since the beginning of 2020, hiring across all business functions including product, engineering, customer satisfaction, manufacturing and operations. Continuing the growth trend in 2021, Seegrid rapidly expanded its product portfolio and released several technology enhancements to help customers keep up with growing demand for goods. Most notably, the company premiered its first autonomous lift truck, Seegrid Palion™ Lift AMR, the only autonomous lift truck with 3D perception in the industry, offering early access for select customers through its Seegrid Technology Early-Access Program (STEP). The company was also recently named the leading U.S. mobile robot provider for its industry-leading autonomous mobile robots and intelligent automation solutions.
“The tremendous supply chain pressures we’ve witnessed over the past 20 months demonstrate just how critical Seegrid’s automation solutions are for businesses to stay competitive and keep up with demand,” said David Griffin. “I’m inspired by the innovation and culture at Seegrid, the leader in autonomous mobile robots, and thrilled to join the team. I look forward to helping Seegrid build on its growth and sales momentum."
