ATLANTA - RedPrairie Corporation, a global supply chain and retail technology provider, announced today the appointment of Tim Pawlenty to RedPrairie’s Board of Directors. Pawlenty, the former Governor of Minnesota and well-established advocate for business, joins RedPrairie’s Board of Directors effective immediately.
Pawlenty’s experience in financial management and cultivating economic development makes him a strategic addition to RedPrairie’s existing board of tenured and innovative business leaders.
During his time as Governor of Minnesota, Pawlenty oversaw the interests of 5.2 million citizens and was responsible for a $50 billion biennial budget, 30,000 employees and more than 20 agencies and departments. As governor, Pawlenty oversaw economic development efforts on behalf of Minnesota businesses, including the promotion of international business through trade missions to nine countries.
“Tim’s combination of experience in the public and private sectors makes him an exceptional addition to RedPrairie’s Board of Directors,” said RedPrairie CEO and fellow board member Mike Mayoras. “Tim and RedPrairie share a track-record of strong financial performance, a passion for innovation, and commitment to advancing the interests of those we serve.”
“I’m impressed with RedPrairie’s visionary strategy,” said Pawlenty. “Their unique position in this market, at the intersection of supply chain and all-channel commerce, is compelling. RedPrairie is at the forefront of the movement to connect the supply chain and consumers in this rapidly evolving global economy. I’m looking forward to being part of a company with such significant financial momentum and that is a force in driving change in the software industry.”
The Chairman of RedPrairie’s board, Alok Singh, commented, “We’re delighted to have Tim join the board. Tim’s public and economic policy background will be very valuable to us as we pursue our growth plans for RedPrairie.”
