ANCHORAGE, Alaska — ARG Industrial on Monday announced the promotion of Mike Powers to the position of chief digital and technology officer.

“I am absolutely thrilled to be joining our executive team, leading our organization into the next chapter of digital innovation," Powers said. "Over the last four years, I have had the opportunity to see first-hand how emerging technologies such as B2B e-commerce, artificial intelligence and data analytics have taken hold in our organization and the overall industry, with no signs of slowing down. I am confident we are well-positioned to not only to meet the challenges of today with our existing technology stack but also anticipate and capitalize on emerging technologies and the trends of tomorrow.”

As ARG Industrial continues to evolve, the company reaffirms its commitment to push boundaries, embrace innovation and deliver significant value to its customers.
