“This unique team reflects the unique position of the IIC.  We are poised to realize the huge potential of the IIoT,” said Schneider. “I’m honored by the support of the Steering Committee and the opportunity to help lead the industry’s most important consortium.”

“IIC has cultivated a unique ecosystem that brings together IT and OT stakeholders to accelerate adoption of the industrial internet,” said Diab. “I am honored to have been elected and look forward to working with IIC members, partners and my colleagues on the Steering Committee.”

“I am honored and delighted to join the IIC leadership to continue to build on the success of IIC and help shape the industry’s future,” said Tabet. “I am looking forward to working closely with all of our members and to delivering on the industrial internet potential.”
