Stephen Hassell joins to lead the team as Atomation closes a $3M funding round

ST. LOUIS (PRWEB) February 20, 2019

Atomation is pleased to announce the appointment of Stephen Hassell to the role of Chief Executive Officer (CEO), effective immediately. Founder and former CEO, Guy Weitzman will remain with Atomation and will focus on delivering Atomation technology to customers. Steve has a long executive career including 13 years at Emerson Electric Company starting as CIO and rising to his most recent role as President of Data Center Solutions where he was responsible for over $1B in revenue. Before joining Emerson, Steve served as CIO at Invensys, VP and CIO of Newport News Shipbuilding as well as CEO of Naptheon, a wholly owned subsidiary that he launched out of Newport News Shipbuilding to transform internal IT operations from a cost line item to a revenue generator. Steve holds a Master of Management from Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management and is a graduate of the US Naval Academy where he earned a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science before serving seven years as a surface line officer in the United States Navy.

“Shortly after joining the company in an advisory capacity, I realized the tremendous opportunity,” Steve shared. “Atomation’s approach to solving problems using large numbers of cost-effective intelligent devices working together opens the Internet of Things to objects you normally overlook like utility poles and pallets. The opportunities are enormous and coming fast. I look forward to the journey ahead,” Steve continued.

“I knew when I met Steve that he would add value to our board,” Guy Weitzman, the company’s previous CEO and founder stated. “After working together for several months, it became clear to me and to Eran Keshet, our co-founder, that Steve is the best choice to lead Atomation through this phase of rapid growth. I’m excited to welcome him formally as our CEO and continue our close working relationship,” he continued.

GlobalSTL Lead Vijay Chauhan echoed Guy’s statements about Steve’s ascension to CEO. “Steve’s successful history driving profitable growth in the technology sector makes him an ideal choice to lead Atomation,” Vijay shared. “After connecting Atomation with U.S. customers and recruiting Guy to expand Atomation’s operations in St. Louis, GlobalSTL is excited to see Atomation enter this next phase of growth.”

Founded in Tel Aviv with its US headquarters in St. Louis, MO, Atomation is a business-to-business solutions company that uses an innovative Internet of Things (IoT) platform and processes to connect existing, in-field, legacy objects / assets to the internet with proprietary software to capture and turn raw data into useful information allowing businesses to transform operations and optimize their bottom line.
