Austin, Texas – August 11, 2015 – Pivot Freight, the platform automating inbound supplier transportation for some of the world’s leading retailers and manufacturers, today announced the appointment of Chris Richter as VP Revenue and Olivier Modica as VP Engineering. Both of these executives have deep and successful track records building companies through early growth stages. Richter, a 20-year technology sales veteran and entrepreneur, excels at bringing the most innovative SaaS applications to market and developing high caliber demand generation and enterprise sales teams and most recently served as VP Sales for Edgecase, a growth-stage business innovating on the consumer eCommerce shopping experience. He was also the founder of SocialWare and served as one of the first sales leaders at Bazaarvoice, now a publicly-traded company. Modica has been building complex technology and data systems while leading and mentoring engineering and operations teams for the past 15 years, most recently as VP Engineering for VAST leading a 75-person team for all platform, products and services; and prior for Lombardi Software where he successfully managed both on-premise and SaaS products and led the transition of Lombardi Software’s SaaS team and product through its acquisition by IBM in 2010.”Pivot Freight has been deeply engaging with our early customers to cement both our customer service and margin enhancement value propositions,” said Rob Taylor, Pivot Freight’s CEO. “We are now ready to expand our customer base while rapidly developing innovative capabilities and Chris and Olivier are the perfect combination to deliver on this promise.”Pivot Freight is a venture-backed business reinventing the transportation supply chain for retailers and manufacturers, starting with inbound supplier freight. With the exponential growth of eCommerce, there has been a corresponding increase in supplier complexity that has been impossible for companies to effectively manage resulting in customer service degradation and runaway shipping costs. The Pivot Freight platform connects, via real time APIs, our customers’ freight and parcel carriers and their suppliers in a fully automated, optimized experience for all parties. The platform easily integrates with existing Transportation Management Systems (TMS) through our modular, cloud-based approach. Finally, Pivot Freight is applying advanced analytics to provide deep visibility into in-transit inventory, delivery exceptions and automated audit for the benefit of both our customers and their supplier bases.”I am thrilled to join Rob and the phenomenal team at Pivot Freight as we focus on building the next great SaaS business in Austin focused on addressing one of the most pressing and strategically critical areas of need for today’s digital retailers and brands,” said Richter while Modica added “I am very excited to join the talented team at Pivot Freight as we build a disruptive platform and product that our customers leverage to improve their business and love to use.”
