Phantom Auto Appoints Robotics Veteran Tom Kaminski as Chief Technology Officer

Phantom Auto, the leading provider of long-range remote operation software
for unmanned vehicles, has appointed Tom Kaminski as Chief Technology
Officer (CTO). Kaminski was most recently Director of Robotics, Worldwide
AGV at Amazon and has over 20 years of experience in the Automated Guided
Vehicles (AGV), Autonomous Mobile Robot (AMR), and material handling
industries. Before Amazon, Kaminski served as Vice President of Mobile
Automation at Dematic and as CEO at Egemin Automation, where he built
worldwide teams that became the market leader through customer focus, a
safety mindset, and cutting-edge technology.

A leader in remote operation of all types of vehicles, Phantom’s
interoperable software enables forklifts, trucks, robots, cars, and more to
be remotely operated by trained operators sitting up to thousands of miles
away. With experience leading large organizations to develop and deliver
integrated hardware and software solutions in the logistics industry,
Kaminski is the ideal choice to lead the development and scaling of
Phantom’s software solutions with its diverse and growing customer base.

“We are thrilled that Tom will bring to Phantom a wealth of global industry
knowledge and over two decades of experience scaling robotics,” said Shai
Magzimof, Co-Founder and CEO at Phantom Auto. “His leadership as CTO will
bolster Phantom’s interoperable technology platform and enable us to scale
and execute our roadmap to serve our customers now and in the future.”

Kaminski’s appointment comes as Phantom Auto scales to meet fast-growing
demand from companies across the logistics and supply chain ecosystem. In
particular, Phantom’s material handling solutions enable logistics operators
to achieve unprecedented improvements in warehouse safety, operational
productivity and resilience, and labor accessibility. Phantom is quickly
ramping up momentum to meet global demand, having recently announced
partnerships with Mitsubishi Logisnext and leading third-party logistics
operators including GEODIS and Kenco Group.

“It’s a very exciting time to join the Phantom team,” said Kaminski.
“Teleoperation is the critical missing link to scale autonomous and unmanned
vehicles in a variety of domains. I look forward to supporting Phantom’s
mission to deliver advanced technical solutions that address our customers’
critical challenges around safety and productivity.”
