“Technology needs to be digestible and it’s important for leaders to select the right level of automation that matches up with the goals and identity of the business. I’m excited to be a part of a team that can advance organizations forward.”
CHICAGO (PRWEB) September 10, 2019
Ashling Partners, a technology-enabled services firm that drives efficiency gains and business process improvement through process discovery, Intelligent Automation, Robotic Process Automation (RPA) and targeted Artificial Intelligence (AI), has appointed Kevin Huggard as Vice President of Intelligent Automation. Huggard will also lead a Detroit-based Innovation Hub for manufacturing and assembly companies.
Huggard brings to Ashling Partners multi-industry expertise and more than fifteen years of leadership in Process Improvement and Intelligent Automation. Before joining Ashling Partners, Huggard led process optimization and automation initiatives for Kelly Services and Comerica Bank leveraging emerging technologies. Huggard also spent nine years within manufacturing environments within General Motors, Globe Motors, and United Airlines.
Huggard holds a Master of Science in Business Administration in Quality and Project Management from Madonna University and a Bachelor of Business Administration from the University of Michigan – Dearborn.
Huggard commented, “Ashling Partners is dedicated to helping its clients operationalize emerging technologies. There’s a lot of noise in industries today around Artificial Intelligence and companies need help to transform into the businesses of tomorrow.
I am fortunate to have been working with these technologies while they were emerging. My experience within the companies gives me the ability to help our clients to determine the best approach for implementation. There is a lot of potential for how Artificial Intelligence will affect the Future of Work but there are threats to organizations that are not beginning the journey.”
He added, “Technology needs to be digestible and it’s important for leaders to select the right level of automation that matches up with the goals and identity of the business. I’m excited to be a part of a team that can advance organizations forward.”
Marshall Sied, Co-founder of Ashling Partners, adds, “We look for our version of what some call ‘smart creatives’. These are leaders that are versatilists at heart, have in depth understanding of business process and intelligent automation technologies, but also understand the business application of that technology. Kevin fits that profile perfectly. His experience across operations, process excellence, and RPA/IA COEs makes him the ideal leader for our Great Lakes market and our Manufacturing Innovation Hub.”
