After four fantastic years, it’s time to say farewell to my dear friends at OutSystems and start a new adventure. It was an amazing journey building a unicorn brand and dominating the low-code market… And now for something completely different. 🙂
I’m thrilled to have joined one of the fastest-growing software companies around as the new CMO of FourKites, the #1 real-time supply chain visibility platform. What makes this company so special? Here’s my top 5 list:
- Rocketship Growth: Forbes recently named FourKites the next billion-dollar tech company, growing from startup to over 500 employees in just 5 years. Hang on tight!
- Impressive Customers: Coca-Cola, Land O’Lakes, Eastman, and hundreds more are completely redefining their supply chains with FourKites’ software. Nine of the top-10 CPG companies, 18 of the top-20 food and beverage companies – these are numbers that are impossible to contend with. You can understand why I was intrigued.
- Super-Cool Technology: Imagine tracking the global movement of over 600,000 trucks, trains and ships every day – now add a layer of machine learning that analyzes weather, traffic and hundreds of other variables to serve up pin-point accurate supply chain orchestration… That’s pretty amazing.
- Helping Our Planet: Supply chains cause 90% of companies’ negative environmental impacts, according to a recent McKinsey report. So, not only does FourKites drive millions of dollars in supply chain efficiencies, it helps the world’s largest shippers drastically eliminate truckloads (pun intended) of CO2.
- Great Snacks: The culture at FourKites is fast, fun and (to keep the alliteration rolling) filled with food. This is a company that truly knows how to work hard, play hard and celebrate success!
For these reasons and many more, I’m thrilled to be joining this fantastic team driving tangible business improvements to the world’s most influential companies. It’s going to be an exciting journey. Stay tuned for more updates to come!
