Plus One Robotics, the leader in vision-guided robotics technology and software for logistics, has announced the addition of industry veteran Robert Nilsson as Chief Revenue Officer. Robert brings a wealth of experience to the role, where he is responsible for commercial strategy and new business growth as the company scales its 3D and AI-powered robotic solutions for warehouses and distribution centers. Robert joins at a high-growth time for the company which, driven by customer demand, recently opened offices in Pittsburgh and The Netherlands.
Prior to joining Plus One Robotics, Nilsson was the Vice President of Sales & Consulting for Swisslog where he was responsible for the go-to-market strategy and growth of integrated systems with Americas enterprise and global customers. He also served as the Chief Business Development Officer for Packsize International where he oversaw development of strategic partners, growth of the European business unit and expansion of global accounts. At Dematic, Robert was the Vice President and General Manager of Software as a Business in North America.
“As an industry veteran, Robert brings a depth of knowledge that separates him from the pack. We are primed to leverage his deep bench of experience to build strategic partnerships for Plus One, and drive efforts across our revenue channels to build and deliver the best possible customer experience. His extensive business acumen and experience as a business strategist and driver of revenue for several global companies will further define and grow our market position,” said Erik Nieves, CEO and Founder at Plus One Robotics.
“Plus One is providing optimized solutions for the supply chain at a time when automation is not only needed but critical,” Nilsson said. “For companies looking to solve problems of volume surge and labor shortage, automation has become a C-Suite imperative, and innovation a company-wide directive for companies looking to solve the crucial problems. Plus One’s technology delivers real-world picking, sorting, and packing solutions that are reliable, flexible, and scalable. The company’s reputation for customer service is second to none in the industry, and I’m excited to join Plus One during this time of growth and expansion to help take the business to the next level globally.”
