Self-driving vehicle provider Seegrid Corp. said Tuesday it has expanded its workforce and made three new hires for senior positions, citing rising demand for self-driving vehicles in manufacturing, distribution, and e-commerce.
Pittsburgh-based Seegrid said its employee list grew by nearly 20 percent in the first half of 2018, reflecting a high volume of new orders. Among those hires are new faces in the company's offices of vice president of engineering, director of marketing, and director of product management.
Seegrid appointed Sean Stetson (above), a Google Inc. veteran and expert in vision systems and mobile technology who is vice president of engineering, to its executive team. The firm also hired Elizabeth Peck as director of marketing, following senior marketing roles with fivestar* and Deltek, and hired Bobbi Jamriska from Swisslog Healthcare as director of product management.
The company plans to leverage the skill and experience of its new members to continue its mission "to transform companies into smart warehouses and factories of the future and prepare for the next generation of materials handling," Seegrid CEO Jim Rock said in a statement.
