ROCKVILLE, Md. — Mike Jackson was named to the board of directors of iControl Systems USA, where he also will serve in the capacity of senior adviser to iControl president and CEO Tal Zlotnitsky.
Jackson is a 30-year veteran of Supervalu who retired from the company in late 2009 as president and COO.
iControl is a supply chain visibility and collaboration solutions provider to retailers and their supply chain partners with a client roster that includes CVS, Safeway, Kroger, Stop & Shop, Rite Aid, Winn Dixie, A&P, Chevron, Hess and other major U.S. retailers.
“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 [and] fair-minded approach to supply chain issues,” Zlotnitsky said. “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.”
The addition of Jackson to the iControl board is expected to help the company gain greater insight into the growing issues affecting retailers and their trading partners. “The iControl suite of services, including their thoughtful and ground-breaking approach to scan-based trading, provide for unprecedented collaboration between the direct store delivery supplier and retailer to optimize the business,” Jackson said.
