Elliott is an almost singular thought leader, as he has spent his career acquiring deep knowledge in two specialties: agriculture and artificial intelligence, a press release stated. He recognized the potency of aligning these sectors long before some others did and is acknowledged as one of the leading voices in agriculture for the integration of data, emerging technologies, and AI deployment.

The new Director has two decades of innovation and company-building experience in agriculture and food supply chains and he sits on the Board of Directors of the International Fresh Produce Association. He was the CEO of ShopWell; the founding CEO of HarvestMark; and he was previously Vice Chair of the Produce Marketing Association. Elliott earned a Ph.D. in engineering from Cambridge University and has authored more than 30 U.S. patents covering innovations in ag robotics, crop phenotyping, cryptography, and satellite remote sensing. In his spare time, Elliott also invented the PTI VoiceCode.

“I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Elliott for over 20 years,” said David Marguleas, Sun World’s CEO. “I don’t know anyone else who comes close to matching Elliott’s stature at the intersection of ag and tech. Not to mention that he is the quintessential left brain-right brain person who brings integrity and good humor to everything he undertakes. Elliott’s expertise in both sustainable ag and the application of emerging tech makes him an invaluable voice at Sun World as these are our dual priorities. Elliott joining our board has long been a goal of mine, and our entire team is grateful for his involvement.”

Congratulations to the new Director!
