iControl Systems USA, LLC is pleased to announce the addition of Mike L. Jackson to the company’s Board of Directors and as a senior advisor to the President & CEO. He will be taking both roles effective immediately.
Until retiring from Supervalu in November 2009, culminating a remarkable 30-year career at the company, Mike served in numerous executive positions within and across the organization. He was named as President and Chief Operating Officer by Supervalu’s board in 2005. Before that, Mike spent time at various Director, VP, EVP, SVP and division president positions at Supervalu, rising to the top from his modest start as a retail counselor to independent retail operators in 1979.
Mike’s extensive marketing and retail background will provide iControl with greater insight into the growing issues facing retailers and their supply chain partners.
“It was my great pleasure to work with Mike on a range of projects through the Food Marketing Institute and the Coca-Cola Retailer Research Council,” wrote Michael Sansolo, former Sr. Vice President of the Food Marketing Institute. “His understanding of industry issues, management challenges and the dynamic issues of the times, is incredible. He's a great leader, a terrific colleague and an asset to the entire food retailing/wholesaling industry. What's more Mike is an absolute gentleman who projects integrity and honesty in everything he does.”
“I am honored and thrilled that Mike has decided to join our board and to take a very active role in our development and growth,” said Tal J. Zlotnitsky, iControl’s CEO. “Mike is among the few true lions of the industry, a man deeply and rightfully respected across the spectrum of retailers and suppliers for his common sense, fair-minded approach to supply chain issues. We are confident that our solution is a game changer, and it is gratifying that someone of Mike’s stature, upon seeing us up close, came to the same conclusion and agreed to put his shoulder to the wheel.”
“I’m very excited to be joining the board of a dynamic retail support company like iControl,” said Mike Jackson in a written statement. “The iControl suite of services, including their thoughtful and ground-breaking approach to SBT, provide for unprecedented collaboration between the DSD supplier and retailer to optimize the business. I’m looking forward to supporting their growth and influence in the food industry.”
