Dr. Robert J. Shillman is the Chairman of the Board, Chief Culture Officer of the Company. He has known to many as “Doctor Bob,” is the founder of Cognex. He has served as Chairman of the Board of Directors and as an executive officer of Cognex since the company’s founding in 1981. Dr. Shillman was Chief Executive Officer of Cognex from 1981 through March 2011, at which time, and upon his recommendation, Mr. Willett was promoted to fill that role. During the past five years, Dr. Shillman has not served as a member of the Board of Directors of another publicly held company or of a registered investment company. We believe Dr. Shillman’s qualifications for sitting on our Board of Directors include his technical background leading to both a Master’s Degree and a Ph.D. in Computer Science and Electrical Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, his in-depth knowledge of AI technology and his 38 years of executive leadership experience building Cognex into the world’s largest and most successful company that specializes in machine vision.
