Imaginnovate said Mr. Ford’s management background in sales and operations would be put to work automating logistics clients. Through its Logistics Studio, Imaginnovate develops digital solutions and also builds dedicated technology teams to augment internal engineering teams for supply chain organizations.
“There’s tremendous pressure on logistics competitors to improve efficiency and service performance in the supply chain,” said Mr. Ford. “I’m thrilled to join a company that has the solution for both challenges.”
