Leading AMR Provider Recognized for Material Handling Automation Expertise and Commitment to Improving the Global Supply Chain
Seegrid Corporation, the leader in autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) for material handling, announced today that Jeff Christensen, the company’s Vice President of Product, has been named the winner of Supply & Demand Chain Executive’s Pros to Know Award. The prestigious annual award recognizes outstanding executives whose accomplishments offer a roadmap for other leaders looking to leverage the supply chain for a competitive advantage. It is the third time Christensen received the accolade from the business technology publication for supply chain executives, covering solutions and services for improving supply chain operations and efficiencies.
Christensen leads the development, design, and strategic vision behind Seegrid’s complete, connected material handling automation solutions serving global brands in logistics, ecommerce, and manufacturing. He brings more than 25 years of industry expertise and a portfolio of notable achievements in user experience, systems design, and data analytics to help Seegrid deliver market-leading AMRs, enterprise software, and data analytics solutions.
“Jeff is a thoughtful strategist with a deep understanding of the challenges businesses are facing across the global supply chain,” said Seegrid’s Chief Executive Officer Jim Rock. “His visionary leadership helps Seegrid deliver market-leading mobile automation solutions that create real value for our customers.”
The award comes during a period of growth and recognition for Seegrid. In the last year, the company introduced three new AMR models, launched Fleet GeekⓇ analytics software, and earned recognition as the #1 AMR provider in the US and #1 market leader in tow tractor AMRs worldwide from Interact Analysis, an international market research authority for the supply chain automation industry. Earlier this month, Seegrid was named the #4 Most Innovative Robotics Company in the World by Fast Company.
A recognized thought leader, Christensen recently gave a keynote presentation with Seegrid’s founder and Chief Roboticist Dr. Hans Moravec on the future of intelligent automation, providing insight into the transformational opportunities that autonomous solutions will bring to the global supply chain.
“This year’s winners are reinventing what it means to be a supply chain professional. They are intuitive, adaptive and so super smart, and continue to push the envelope when it comes to everything supply chain-related,” says Marina Mayer, Editor-in-Chief of Supply & Demand Chain Executive and Food Logistics.
“Automation technology unlocks better ways to work faster, safer, and smarter,” said Christensen. “This recognition is a tribute to the entire Seegrid team as we work together to transform the global supply chain with intelligent material handling solutions.”
