At the heart of what uShip does — that is, help people and businesses efficiently connect with logistics providers who handle large items and freight — there is technology in many forms. It takes a person with a lot of know-how to ensure it all works together smoothly, seamlessly, and securely.
That’s why we’re excited to welcome Kris Lamb to the team as uShip’s Chief Technology Officer.
Kris is a long-time enterprise technology executive who brings more than 15 years of leadership experience in engineering, product management, enterprise software, security, cloud/hosting, SMB, and mobility at both public and private companies. He previously served as vice president and general manager of cloud security at Austin-based Forcepoint.
“Kris has an incredible track record as a transformational technology leader, a successful recruiter of top-notch engineering teams, and one who knows what it takes to build and scale innovation at the highest level,” said Mike Williams, CEO of uShip.
“With logistics technology evolving at lightning speed, Kris is the right person to drive uShip’s innovation forward as we continue to push the envelope and deliver first of its kind digital freight matching for people, businesses, and enterprises,” Mike said.
“What made the uShip CTO role so attractive is the opportunity to join an organization with a renowned company culture and that’s truly upending logistics, an industry that’s ripe for transformation,” said Kris.
“I’ve always looked for opportunities to establish, lead, and grow product and engineering teams that truly turn heads. uShip is exactly that kind of opportunity. The company is solving problems and automating freight processes in ways no one else is doing. That’s incredibly exciting to me,” he said.
Before Forcepoint, Lamb was VP of Engineering at Bastille Networks and held leadership positions at Arbor Networks (where he was CTO), IBM, and Internet Security Systems. He began his career leading the mission to build, scale, and grow X-Force, Internet Security Systems’ world-renowned security research organization.
