The automation and supply chain platform Slync has added to its supply chain team with the appointments of Samuel Israel, the former regional CEO of DHL Global Forwarding, and Nikos Papageorgiou, a supply chain digitisation and transformation expert from Deloitte.
Israel is to take the position of global logistics leader, while Papageorgiou has been named Vice President of Customer Success.
In a statement, the company said the additions of Israel and Papageorgiou “continue a period of rapid growth and talent acquisition”.
“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 digitisation and transformation initiatives for Fortune 100 clientele. They will both add immense value for our customers.”
As a regional CEO, Israel led DHL Global Forwarding for more than 10 years, where he built a multibillion-dollar logistics organisation 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.
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.”
