SVT Robotics announced the addition of Griffin Chronis to its executive team as chief technology officer (CTO).
“I am excited and honoured to join A.K. and the SVT Robotics team as chief technology officer,” said Chronis. “These are amazing people and I love the enthusiasm of the culture here.

Schultz, CEO of SVT Robotics. “We’re thrilled to have him leading our software and product engineering teams here at SVT.”
