Ag Tech company announces two new members to Advisory Board
Freight Farms today announced former Tesla and current Nest executive Tom vonReichbauer as a new member of the Freight Farms Advisory Board. VonReichbauer is an expert in growing channel-disrupting technology companies and will assist Freight Farms as it expands the application of its hardware and software platforms into a brand new business segment.
“I’m extremely excited to support Freight Farms, as the intersection of technology and agriculture is what first hooked me on the broader theme of sustainability,” said vonReichbauer. “Brad, Jon, and the entire team at Freight Farms have built a great product and service which I believe will play a critical role in the impending food supply crunch, help consumers eat better and feel more connected to their food sources, and create new opportunities for current and aspiring farmers around the world.”
Freight Farms also welcomes Melissa Melshenker Ackerman, Executive Vice President of Sales at Produce Alliance to the Advisory Board. Her expertise is complementary to vonReichbauer’s, and she will leverage her experience with produce distribution at the national account level to guide Freight Farms in future partnerships with major distributors, brokers, buyers, and sellers.
