But truth be told, this is just a sliver of what we’ve been up to.

Behind closed doors, we have been innovating quite aggressively around everything from Internet of Things (IoT), blockchain and RFID to artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning and 3D sensors so that we can continue to bring you the advanced technology solutions you need to capture your edge. Out in our communities, we have volunteered tens of thousands of hours in an effort to give back to our local communities where we live and work.

And our team’s hard work has not gone unnoticed.

Just recently, we learned that Zebra moved up from #45 (2018) to #32 (2019) on the Crain’s Chicago Business Fast 50 list. Our Chief Marketing Officer Jeff Schmitz and Chief Financial Officer Olivier Leonetti were also named honorees in this year’s Daily Herald Business Ledger’s C-Suite of the Year awards. And a number of other Zebras have received industry accolades throughout the year for their individual and team contributions to technology innovation and industry advancement.

We are often asked what we believe the primary driver to be for Zebra’s growth. To help shed some light on all the influential forces, Jeff Schmitz sat down with Olivier Leonetti for a very candid discussion about Zebra’s past, present and future.
