BluJay Solutions announce new CTO

Sam Addeo has been named as the new chief technology officer for BluJay Solutions. 

BluJay Solutions is a provider of global supply chain software and services. Addeo has spent the majority of his 25-year career in enterprise software development in the supply chain and retail spaces.  

He joins BluJay with a record of building high-performing teams to deliver high-quality enterprise software. He is experienced in technology leadership with a variety of agile software development methodologies and techniques in the supply chain and ecommerce domains. 

Andrew Kirkwood, chief executive officer of BluJay, says Addeo has brought to market new, innovative technical solutions, as well as enhanced existing products all with high demands for performance, scalability, reliability, and security. 

"We are delighted to welcome Sam to BluJay Solutions and to our leadership team in the important role of CTO. Sam brings with him the experience of leading and working with teams distributed around the globe, using the latest development techniques to effectively build complex solutions," he explains 

"His background and approach to delivering success are a great fit for BluJay and our customers."

Most recently, Addeo was senior vice president and chief development Officer at Aptos, where he led development resources in multiple countries and time zones to build commerce solutions for some of the worlds leading retail brands. He previously held leadership positions at Intelligrated, a division of Honeywell, and spent 14 years at Manhattan Associates as part of the senior management team for R&D for multiple products and technologies. Addeo holds a Computer Science degree from Michigan State University. 

Speaking of his appointment, Addeo says, "BluJay is demonstrating remarkable momentum as a business; I am really excited about the DNA strategy and doing some innovative things to further unlock the potential of the data and the network that BluJay possesses.

"I enjoy the challenge of applying technology to solve real-world business challenges. One of the things that I like about the supply chain is the complexity of the problems, and the ability to see your solutions have an impact," he says.

"I am thrilled to join the team and work together to deliver solutions that give BluJay customers a business advantage."

In March this year, BluJay Solutions announced the acquisition of Australia-based Expedient Software, as it looked to expand its presence across Australia, New Zealand and the Asia-Pacific.

"We continue to strategically invest in technologies that enable frictionless supply chains for our customers," Kirkwood said at the time.

"As a major player in the Australian customs and forwarding market, Expedient brings highly complementary technology to BluJays portfolio, along with a knowledgeable team to bolster our presence and expertise in the Asia-Pacific market."
