In the process, he earned AMR Research’s ‘Best Organization of the World’ award for his excellence in supply-chain management. We welcome him to our board of advisors and know that his contributions will further strengthen our market-readiness in the coming months.”

“I am excited to join the Sand 9 board of advisors,” said Jean-Francois Baril, founder, Connecting Partners SA. “They are an extremely promising company offering unique product capabilities for a huge target market.
