I caught Simon doing a presentation at ATX Anaheim show and I tracked him down to talk about collaborative technologies in automation.
Simon recently rejoined ATS in April of 2018 to lead the growth of the SuperTrak brand in the global market.
At Clearpath Robotics he helped establish the OTTO product line of indoor self driving targeting autonomous material handling in the industrial market. In his role he built and oversaw a team leading market strategy, product development, product design, and program execution.
Prior to Clearpath, Simon held multiple progressive roles at ATS Automation, overseeing the execution of multi-faceted automation programs for some of the world’s largest companies with revenues exceeding $30 million / year and project teams exceeding 70 people operating 24/7. Project experience spans multiple industries, including solar, packaging, consumer electronics, and medical devices with installations of over 750 systems in North America, Europe, and Asia.
Simon earned Bachelor of Science degree in Systems Design Engineering, with an option in Management Sciences, from the University of Waterloo as well as an MBA from Wilfrid Laurier University with a specialization in Strategic Management and International Business Operations, earned on a part-time basis.
