SATO Global Solutions (SGS), a wholly-owned subsidiary of SATO Holdings, has appointed Keith Sherry as its chief operating officer (COO), responsible for leading the strategic development of IoT products and services for the retail and supply chain sectors. SGS recently unveiled the first cloud-based IoT platform to improve inventory accuracy and visibility.

With over more than two decades at British Telecom (BT) in high level business development roles, Sherry has successfully nurtured the global market for BT’s retail IoT, supply chain and information and communication technology solutions, among others. He will apply his 20-plus years of technology expertise to support operations, revenue and market extension for the SGS suite of solutions, focused primarily on development of new IoT strategies designed to address specific customer business challenges.

"I am excited to join the SGS team during this time of great momentum and innovation. The opportunities for retailers to benefit from IoT are becoming more apparent every day and SGS is in a unique position to empower them to leverage the power of data and transform their businesses," Sherry said.

"We are extremely fortunate to be joined by Keith at this critical moment when our company is perfectly poised to accelerate delivery of our IoT solutions," said Goro Yumiba, chairman and chief executive officer of SGS. "His leadership, vision and talent, which enabled the formation of the Acuitas Digital Alliance, will help us gain greater visibility in the market in order to build our IoT business."

Sherry was also the driving force behind the Acuitas Digital Alliance, developing the organisation from the ground up, and serving as vice president of business and market development. Launched in 2016 by SGS and others, the Alliance brings together like-minded technology innovators to help companies through end-to-end digital transformation efforts from the supply chain all the way to brick-and-mortar. The Alliance creates cloud-based, future-proof solutions leveraging transformational technologies such as big data and IoT to help retailers engage with customers and optimise operations from production to purchase.
