“Larry’s unique background in building sales via a global mix of direct and partner channels in automation and robotics makes him a key addition to the company,” said Yaro Tenzer, co-founder and CEO of RightHand Robotics. “With more retail and grocery customer activity moving online, the need for robotic picking solutions in warehouses and fulfillment centers is only getting stronger. As our RightPick solution continues to advance and expand, Larry’s knowledge will help us reach the companies that are leading the race to ignite growth via new ‘bricks and clicks’ strategies.”
Chin holds a Certificate in Business Management from MIT’s Sloan School of Management, a Masters in Management from Lesley University, and a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Worcester Polytechnic Institute.
