Working with its manufacturing partners, Brain Corp has built a leading market presence, with thousands of autonomous robots operating daily in some of the world’s largest retailers, including Walmart and Kroger. In its last market analysis, ABI Research named Brain Corp the No. 1 autonomy solution provider for mobile robotics. Brain Corp expects its explosive growth to continue with the following changes in its leadership:

Dave Vigil has joined the team as our new Senior Vice President of Global Sales and Service, bringing with him years of experience in sales, corporate business development, strategy, and executive leadership at pioneering technology companies. During his 20+ years at Qualcomm, Dave oversaw a number of strategic initiatives for global business growth, including leading a wholly owned Qualcomm subsidiary. Given his background, Dave is the perfect choice to help Brain Corp scale to the next level of growth, expand into new markets, and drive adoption so that our original equipment manufacturing (OEM) partners and end-customers realize the full value of BrainOS as a unified AI robotic platform that powers their robot ecosystem.

After five years with Brain Corp, Christian Cornelius-Knudsen has made the decision to take on a new challenge as President of a large Integrated Facility Service Management Company. Christian has been instrumental in bringing Brain Corp’s technology to the cleaning industry and developing commercial partnerships with the largest OEMs in the industry. Under his stewardship, Brain Corp has also built a strong global sales and service organization. The entire team is incredibly grateful for Christian’s leadership, drive, and many contributions to Brain Corp’s growth.

With Dave overseeing sales and service, we look forward to continuing to innovate and break new ground with our OEM partners. The COVID-19 crisis has ushered in a new era of automation, demanding a new way of thinking about how to better support workers, streamline operations and remain nimble. It’s about an investment in restoring confidence, and knowing that operations will remain stable, whether there is a “second wave” or not. Robots deliver the goods and provide digital “proof of work” metrics that mission-critical tasks have been accomplished. Brain Corp remains committed to our vision of a world where the lives of people are made safer, easier and more productive with the help of robots.
