Aug. 01, 2018
SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug 1, 2018--Slync, an automation platform revolutionizing workflows and partner collaboration throughout the global supply chain, continues to add top industry talent to its team. Global logistics leader Samuel Israel, the former regional CEO of DHL Global Forwarding, has moved from an advisory role into a full-time leadership position as President of Slync International. Nikos Papageorgiou, a supply chain digitization and transformation expert from Deloitte, has been named Vice President of Customer Success. The additions of Israel and Papageorgiou continue a period of rapid growth and talent acquisition for Slync.
“We’re committed to adding top talent and incredible people to the Slync team. Our people and creating a world class team are top priorities for us – and a critical factor in our customers’ continued success with Slync,” said Chris Kirchner, CEO and co-founder of Slync. “Both Samuel and Nikos have a storied history of leading successful supply chain digitization and transformation initiatives for Fortune 100 clientele. They will both add immense value for our customers.”
Israel, who was already serving as a member of Slync’s Advisory Board, is a seasoned and successful executive in the logistics industry. As a regional CEO, Israel led DHL Global Forwarding for more than 10 years, where he built a multibillion-dollar logistics organization in Latin America. He brings more than 35 years of global logistics, freight forwarding and international trade experience to his role as President of Slync International.
Papageorgiou is renowned for successfully deploying next generation technologies – including blockchain, cognitive analytics, IoT and artificial intelligence – across major enterprise networks. His experience includes 12 years of leading large-scale, mission-critical supply chain operations engagements across logistics and distribution, transportation, sourcing, quality and manufacturing. Most recently at Deloitte, Papageorgiou spearheaded numerous digital transformations of Fortune 100 global supply chains and was at the forefront of the firm’s blockchain practice.
“Leading organizations across the globe partner with Slync for our team’s deep experience solving critical and complex supply chain logistics problems. Our success stems from solving problems and adding value first – not forcing technology into a market,” said Kirchner. “This is only possible with a team that truly immerses ourselves in our customers’ challenges to deliver ground breaking and lasting solutions for their business with the Slync platform.”
