Walmart executive becomes a Pioneer
Former Walmart Executive Chris Sultemeier has been appointed to join warehouse drone pioneer, PINC’s board of directors. Sultemeier held the position of Executive Vice President of Logistics for Walmart Stores, Inc.
“I’ve had the pleasure of knowing the PINC team for almost four years now,” said Sultemeier. “With the company’s experience and core intellectual property in asset and inventory identification, I’ve seen firsthand how large organizations can benefit from PINC’s solutions, especially the aerial inventory robots. I’m flattered to be part of such an amazingly innovative team.”
Sultemeier retired from Walmart in April 2017 and is currently an instructor in the MIT Masters in Transportation and Supply Chain program. He has served on the Boards of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes for Northwest Arkansas, the University of Arkansas Veterans Resource Center and the University of Arkansas Supply Chain Center where he was Chairman for several years. At present, Sultemeier serves on the U.S. Congressional Medal of Honor Foundation Board, Archways Logistics Marketing and Duke Real Estate, and is a Deacon at FBC Rogers and Chairman of the Personnel Committee.
PINC is not the only board Sultemeier is involved with. In June, the former executive was appointed as Chairman to the board of directors for Platform Science, a company of integrated hardware and software solutions for commercial vehicles.
“With his experience managing one of the world’s largest supply chains, Chris brings a unique perspective to PINC,” said Matt Yearling, PINC’s Chief Executive Officer. “His involvement reaffirms our continued industry leadership in the digitalization of inventory.”
