Murray Hill-based intermodal information technology company Advent Intermodal Solutions on Tuesday announced it has named a new CEO as it plans a redesign of its signature supply chain management system.
Parvez Mansuri, who at one time was chief information officer of the company, will now serve as CEO after spending the past four years running an independent venture known as Wireless Asset Management. Mansuri, who had been serving as an adviser and director to AIS, was previously with the company from 2001 to 2011, serving as CIO from 2003 on.
“We’re delighted to welcome Parvez Mansuri and his extensive experience in the industry back to the Advent family,” said a statement issued by the AIS board of directors.
“His dedication to excellence and proven track record of leadership will guide Advent as we embark on a plan to update our eModal platform to leverage the latest IT and mobile technologies. Parvez has proven an innate ability to drive innovation and growth wherever he has served and will help ensure that Advent continues to deliver services to the intermodal logistics community that makes their lives easier.”
Mansuri has more than 20 years of experience and a deep wealth of knowledge in the intermodal industry. In 2001, Mansuri first joined AIS and in 2003 was named the company’s chief information officer.
“I am delighted to have been asked to return to AIS as CEO and at the prospect of leading the company during this transitional and vital time,” said Parvez Mansuri, CEO of AIS. “My goal for the company is to ensure steady growth and bring the latest IT trends and tools to the intermodal community to help them work more cooperatively and efficiently. To this point, I’m encouraged that the first of many planned updates to our eModal platform was recently announced because it represents a first step towards making our systems more user-friendly, intuitive and ultimately more valuable to its users.”
