Gemma Ross Named
”Pro to Know”


Award winners are outstanding executives whose accomplishments offer a roadmap for other leaders looking to leverage the supply chain for competitive advantage.

SAN FRANCISCO, CA (March 31 2022) – OSARO VP of Operations Gemma Ross has been named a 2022 “Pro to Know” by Supply & Demand Chain Executivea magazine covering the global supply chain. The award recognizes outstanding executives whose accomplishments offer a roadmap for others working with the supply chain to create a competitive advantage. Supply and Demand Chain announced its annual list of Pros to Know during MODEX 2022, one of the logistics and e-commerce fulfillment industry’s largest trade shows.

In the last three years – despite surging demands and stress in the supply chain during the pandemic – Ross has overseen more than 15 deployments in five countries along with OSARO’s launch of the first Robotics Solution for Automated Bagging, which pairs the company’s sophisticated pick-and-place robot with equipment from leading bagging equipment makers. Ross oversees everything from finance, legal, HR, and facilities to program management and customer success. “I’m honored,” said Ross. “I love a new problem to solve and guiding teams to find good answers. The reward is seeing workable solutions get into a customer‘s hands.”

“At OSARO, we believe in meeting market challenges by providing complete robotics piece-picking applications for e-commerce,” said OSARO CEO Derik Pridmore. “But providing high-end technology is not enough. We partner with customers to co-create effective solutions and support them beyond installation. Gemma is the one who orchestrates our resources to make it all happen.”

“This year’s winners are reinventing what it means to be a supply chain professional,” said Marina Mayer, editor-in-chief of Supply & Demand Chain Executive and Food Logistics. “This year’s winners are intuitive, adaptive and so super smart, and continue to push the envelope when it comes to everything supply chain-related. We received over 360 nominations this year, the highest number of nominations ever for this award.”
