They will also join ElectrifAi’s global management committee.

“I am proud to have these three exceptional executives join ElectrifAi and propel us on our mission to change the way our customers work through machine learning. … Each of these executives brings a unique set of skills to the table.

In her new role, she will be responsible for integrating the company’s machine learning and AI algorithms into best practice for delivery.
