MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Nov. 11, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Tesla's former CPO and Head of Supply Chain, Peter Carlsson, is joining Elementum's advisory board, the company announced today. Carlsson's experience and know-how will help the Silicon Valley disruptor accelerate the growth of the world's Product Graph™, a digital mapping of the $25 trillion global product economy.
Elementum: What supply chain has been missing.
After nearly two decades in the industry, Carlsson knows what he's talking about when he describes supply chain as "one crisis after another." Until now, he explains, there has been no way to get ahead of its unpredictable nature––no way to stay on top of inventories, suppliers, carriers, and manufacturers in real-time, and no way to react quickly to the unexpected. Elementum, says Carlsson, is providing a unique capability to give companies a truly global visualization that has never existed before in supply chain. Packaged in an innovative UI and powered by a LinkedIn-style graph, Elementum provides information, insights, and early warning signals on issues as they arise, finally making it possible to take action in real-time. In short: Elementum puts you on top of your supply chain. And Carlsson? He can't wait to help create this global perspective.
"In supply chain, it's all about how fast you can act on information. Soon, it will be very dangerous to NOT have access to Elementum's platform."
-Peter Carlsson, Advisory Board, Elementum
Redrawing supply chain.
Contrary to popular practices, supply chains are not isolated operations: to solve the supply chain problem for one company, you must solve it for all companies. In doing so, Elementum seeks people both experienced enough and bold enough to solve a problem of such magnitude. Carlsson's background––spanning giants such as Sony Ericsson, NXP Semiconductors, and Tesla––lends itself to these needs; he has an invaluable global context and understands the deeply interconnected nature of supply chain. The combination of Carlsson's global experience and global vision will serve to further accelerate the development of the world's Product Graph™.
"From innovation to disruption, Carlsson's career connects deeply to Elementum's foundational values. We're thrilled to have him on our team."
-Nader Mikhail, Founder & CEO, Elementum
