WENATCHEE, Wash., Sept. 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Centricity Global announced today that Laurie Simon joined the company to further develop new agribusiness innovation and to strengthen global technology-driven solutions pertaining to business transformation and data. Laurie is nationally recognized for her efforts to advance women in the technology sector and moving the needle impacting public policy. Laurie is a previous software developer turned business consultant with over 20 years of business and technology consulting across numerous vertical industries.
Laurie joins Centricity as a Partner and newly appointed Chief Operations Officer to continue Centricity's success and growth in providing scalable products, services and new innovation for enterprise-level technologies across the natural resources industry.
"I am fortunate to have this opportunity in joining the Centricity Team," said Laurie. "I spent several appointed years on the Centricity Advisory Board to focus on healthy yet disruptive solutions in an industry that is hungry for change. Centricity clearly aligns with my innovative passion and thirst for data and analysis driven by culture and competition. This sparked my interest in helping lead the company to deliver farm forward data solutions that will fundamentally change the assessment of data and how the stakeholders are valued and interact across the supply chain."
"Our focus is to strengthen gateway technologies by partnering with global platform companies that align with the new era of 'real-time connections' and 'no-latency awareness' across the supply chain," said Drew Zabrocki, Chief Executive Officer. "Laurie's experience in building and delivering business architecture, tools and frameworks will help lead our initiative to broaden how humans and machines co-create on today's farm in order to transform data to knowledge."
"I look forward to building meaningful partner relations in order to provide a gateway to distribute our architecture, technologies and tool-sets," explains Laurie. "Farmers want to farm and their data is valuable. The industry has been doing a lot of talking about how 'data will be the future of ag' for over twenty years – now's the time to create that reality."
