Kelly Sickles is the newest addition to the rapidly growing team at Vecna Robotics (Vecna). Vecna’s recent hires ensure the autonomous solutions leader will robustly scale as demand for their self-driving products continues to rise.
Sickles joins the Vecna team with 20 years of finance and leadership experience. She has a proven record of facilitating growth and expansion within technology companies such as Boxed, an e-commerce and logistics company, and IoT companies ThinkEco and Noveda Technologies. She also brings a wealth of financial and capital markets experience from a decade spent as an investment banker and research analyst.
“I’m excited and very proud to be joining such a talented team at this time of rapid growth,” Sickles commented. “Vecna Robotics has a rare combination of deep technical expertise, vetted industry experience, and startup tenacity and spirit. I look forward to bringing my experiences to the team as we take the company to the next level and deliver cutting-edge robotics solutions to our customers.”
Dan Patt, CEO of Vecna Robotics stated, “It was a huge win for us to bring Kelly on board. Just like Vecna, she brings proven success and thrives in a fast-paced environment. This balance is important – even as we grow, we will maintain our long-term commitments to innovation and keeping our customers first.”
Kelly will start at Vecna this October, just in time to witness the launch of a new sister website, Pivot.al. This microsite focuses on Vecna’s AI-based orchestration engine of the same name, Pivot.al. This powerful system combines the natural strengths of robots and humans. It ensures resilient and optimal performance by connecting the warehouse floor, allocating task based on capabilities and availability, and collecting data to make informed decisions. In addition, Vecna is also set to unveil a new look for their website, vecnarobotics.com, highlighting their automation solutions which leverage Pivot.al.
