Food robotics company Chowbotics introduces Rick Wilmer as its new CEO. Following exponential growth in 2019 - doubling its revenue every quarter and establishing the company as the leader in food robotics - Chowbotics is poised to scale its operations even further by bringing in a proven CEO with more than 30 years of experience to the helm.
Chowbotics’ founder, Dr. Deepak Sekar, recruited Wilmer to Chowbotics. An inventor with 125 patents and the creator of Sally the Robot, he will assume the role of president, with responsibility for technology, products, and strategic partnerships.
Wilmer was part of the management team at Aruba Networks as it conducted its IPO. He then joined Pliant as CEO and led it to an acquisition by SanDisk for $327M. Recently, he was the CEO of Mojo Networks, which he led to a successful acquisition by Arista Networks.
Chowbotics makes fresh food accessible with Sally, the first fresh food robot. Sally's innovative technology provides customizable salads, bowls and snacks 24/7 in a 3’X3’ space.
