A visionary thinker, Evan has a proven track record of seeking out and leading step change innovations over a career spanning 20 years in forest products, industrial manufacturing and pharmaceutical sectors. Evan has served as Chief Executive Officer of SMARTSKIN since 2016 and has since led the company on a transformational journey into one of the most results oriented and pervasive IIoT-based solution providers in the beverage and pharmaceutical industries today. Contrary to popular media coverage, Evan thinks the biggest problem of our day is not finding a COVID vaccine; but rather how to quickly increase capacity to get it produced. He is convinced that SMARTSKIN's digital analytics and condition monitoring platform can help pharma producers get 1 billion extra doses within the year and considers it SMARTSKIN's most important mission.
Evan has a degree in mechanical engineering, an MBA, and is a certified Six Sigma Blackbelt. For the past several months he has "roughed" isolation from his home near St. Andrews by-the-Sea where he enjoys whale-watching, fishing and spending time in his woodlot with his wife and young family.
