According to a release, the new account gives MHI CEO George W. Prest a means of communicating directly with the public and MHI members to share updates, observations, industry news, and general thoughts.
“As a thought leader in the industry it makes sense that MHI’s CEO should join Twitter where ideas are easily shared and spread,” said Carol Miller, vice president of marketing and communications services. “This gives George an even greater voice with which to deliver valuable insight and empowering messages.”
The account went live at the beginning of the second week of June and Prest is already actively tweeting.
“I’m really excited about it. I’m new to Twitter, but it is a great channel of communication,” said Prest. “It makes me more accessible to members and the general public. I’m looking forward to seeing and being a part of the supply chain and material handling buzz on Twitter.”
Twitter is one of many channels of communication that MHI uses to be a valuable resource for companies and professionals in the supply chain industry and the customers that rely upon them. The new Twitter account also comes at a time of rebranding for the MHI Twitter account, which changed to @poweredbymhi from @mhia, a holdover from when MHI was branded as MHIA.
