Robby Technologies hires former Apple exec to guide deployment of autonomous delivery robots

Robby Technologies, a developer of self-driving delivery robots, has announced that former Apple executive Saumil Nanavati has joined its management team to lead the business development and marketing efforts to help progressive businesses to move cargo, food or groceries using self-driving robots.

Nanavati served in marketing and partnerships at Apple from 2015-2017 and has built two successful venture-backed startups. He holds a BSc in Engineering, Computer Systems and Economics from Purdue University. 

Working with co-founders CEO Rui Li and CTO Dheera Venkatraman from MIT with PhDs in robotics, Nanavati will orchestrate the broader view of Robby to use AI-empowered self-driving robots to change the way goods are moved around and between people, stores and warehouses.
