Omnichain, an enterprise focused on providing cognitive supply chain management software on distributed ledger technology (blockchain), has announced the addition of experienced sales and supply chain professional, Gary González, as vice president of enterprise sales & strategy. González will be responsible for managing Omnichain’s enterprise sales team, guiding the team’s strategy and increasing its size and coverage for target accounts, including Fortune 500 companies and other global organizations.
Pratik Soni, founder and CEO, Omnichain, said, “Gary has a breadth of expertise in how to grow sales teams and lead them to excellence. He has worked with some of the biggest service providers in the supply chain industry, enabling them to foster strong and lasting relationships with household names across multiple industry verticals, including retail, apparel, food & beverage, pharmaceuticals and consumer packaged goods. I am excited to see how he will further our business development and accelerate our path to hypergrowth.”
With a career that traverses multiple continents and countries, González began by working with Danish container shipping company Maersk Line, helping to secure key contracts with apparel brands and pharmaceutical companies shipping products internationally. This allowed González to build his sales experience and network of contacts, eventually leading to a management role at a burgeoning supply chain technology startup. He would later help grow the startup from $10,000 to $30 million in revenue. Since then, González has continued to work in the supply chain technology space, covering solutions from Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and Supply Chain Management (SCM), to Big Data and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS).
On joining Omnichain, Gary González, said, “Pratik and the Omnichain team have built a robust solution that is exactly what the supply chain needs today. Companies are dealing with increasingly fragmented operations—both domestically and abroad. These unfortunate silos make it difficult to get insight into where a product is, and what the market looks like at any given time, creating challenges in forecasting, planning and provenance. Omnichain offers a single platform to obtain all that information—in real time—for better visibility and decision-making. While others are experimenting with blockchain, Omnichain has a product that is in market—and I look forward to taking the Omnichain brand to new heights.”
González is based in Westfield, New Jersey. His appointment is effective immediately.
