Data and IoT Industry Veteran Jack Domme and Former GE and Paramount Leader Frederick Huntsberry Join Advisor Team
SEATTLE – December 3, 2019 – Xemelgo, a Seattle-based startup delivering Industry 4.0 Smart Manufacturing solutions, today announced important new milestones in the company’s growth. Jack Domme and Frederick Huntsberry have joined the company’s Board of Directors. Xemelgo also announced today that it has raised over $700K in seed funding.
New Board Members Bring Data, IoT and Operational Expertise to Xemelgo
Jack Domme, formerly CEO and Chairman, Hitachi America, Executive Officer, Hitachi, Ltd., and CEO of Hitachi Data Systems joins Xemelgo’s Board of Directors. Domme brings decades of enterprise software, data and industrial IoT experience to advise Xemelgo on its vision and strategy. Frederick Huntsberry, formerly COO of Paramount Pictures and long-time GE veteran, will advise Xemelgo on its business operations.
“Real-time insight into what’s happening on the factory floor and across business processes can help manufacturers save money and become more efficient,” said Jack Domme. “As a member of Xemelgo’s board, I’m inspired by the opportunity to join the company’s efforts to bring smart manufacturing solutions that are easy to use and deliver quick value to customers. Xemelgo’s leadership team has a proven track record of delivering scalable software for the enterprise and it will be exciting to guide this team to change the game in smart manufacturing.”
“Manufacturers depend on systems to manage inventories and they seek the benefits that data, automation and AI technologies can provide, but for which they may lack the expertise or resources to implement new solutions. Xemelgo has developed a unique suite of products that are complementary to manufacturers’ existing business and ERP systems, and that deliver ROI metrics,” said Frederick Huntsberry. “I look forward to partnering with the talented team at Xemelgo as they gear up to take their solutions to a broad market.”
“We are delighted to welcome Jack and Frederick to our board. Their unique experiences leading the strategy and operations of multi-billion-dollar organizations make them ideal partners in helping to define Xemelgo’s next phase of growth from product development to go-to-market,” said Rich Rogers, CEO, Xemelgo.
