Inteligistics promotes two to VP positions

Inteligistics, which has been leading the digital transformation and adding value to perishable supply chains for over a decade, has promoted company veterans Lawrence Mallia to vice president of digital transformation, and Eric Kithinji to vice president of operations and engineering.

“Lawrence and Eric have been instrumental to our success developing systems and helping leading companies such as Driscoll’s, Fresh Del Monte, Dole and Church Brothers improve their supply chain visibility and efficiency,” Rao Mandava, Inteligistics CEO and chairman, said in a news release. “Their leadership and elevated roles will help Inteligistics expand our supply chain solutions to reduce waste, increase sales and comply with customer and regulatory requirements for food safety, traceability and sustainability.”

Lawrence Mallia

Since graduating the University of California Santa Cruz in 2011, Mallia has been focused on customer development, support, integration and implementation of information management and process control systems. He originally joined Inteligistics in 2019 as a project engineer and was subsequently promoted to project manager in 2020.

“From growers’ fields to retailers’ last mile stores, we’re helping the companies that feed the world to make their processes efficient, reduce waste, save expense, and capture lost revenue by adopting advanced technology applications,” Mallia said in the release.

Eric Kithinji

Kithinji joined Inteligistics in 2011 as lead engineer after completing his master’s of science in engineering from Minnesota State University. He has been chief engineer of operations, since February 2021. In addition to being the architect for much of the Inteligistics ecosystem of supply chain solutions, he is also the company’s lead customer facing solutions expert.

“Experience on-site with our customers has helped us combine off-the-shelf technology with artificial intelligence and machine learning to create practical and cost-effective solutions to a variety of supply chain issues,” Kithinji said in the release.
