For the last few decades, “Human Resources” was responsible for getting the most out of workers. This meant optimizing for health plans, salaries, and interpersonal conflict.

 

Claude Silver believes there’s another way.

 

She leads with her heart and emotional optimism. She owns the onboarding, recruitment, retention, and graduation of all the people that come through VaynerMedia. She calls upon 20 years of guiding client relationships, global brand strategies, operations, and management at numerous Fortune 50 companies to lead and inspire.

 

In this conversation, Aaron and Claude discuss the day-to-day of her job, the design of her office, and how Vayner onboards new hires.

IAM Robotics named a new CEO in August 2018 and closed a $20M Series A that November. How have they managed so much upheaval? I decided to find out directly from Joel Reed

 

Joel is the CEO of IAM Robotics and calls upon 20 years of experience in strategic planning and business development to lead the company’s commercialization of its innovative products.

 

We discuss the fundraising process, how Joel came to join IAM Robotics, and how he recruits technical talent.

 

Joel previously worked to introduce the first commercially available autonomous mobile robots as a new class of manufacturing and warehouse AGVs to 3PL providers, integrators and clients such as GENCO, Supply Chain Management (Walmart Canada), Freightliner Trucks | Daimler and BMW Manufacturing. Joel started his career as a process and technology consultant at Ernst & Young (now Cap Gemini) and also led the commercialization of a 3D software tools company, which was acquired by Autodesk.
