Upending the Supply Chain: How Silicon Valley & Vertical Integration are Disrupting the Way We Build

Registration Closed

It’s no secret that building is full of inefficiencies. We rely on a tangled network of designers, contractors, subs and suppliers to complete our projects. The result—delays, cost overruns, waste and, often, unhappy clients. Enter Katerra, a transformative new technology company that is applying successful Silicon Valley principles to construction. Founded by Michael Marks, a former CEO and board member for companies like Flex, Tesla, GoPro and Zappos, Katerra is bringing a new level of efficiency and precision to their projects through vertical integration, technology and a systems based approach.

Our speaker is Trevor Schick. Trevor leads the Katerra materials organization. Most recently a senior vice president at Hewlett-Packard in charge of global supply chain and quality, he leverages over 15 years of experience in the electronics industry so that Katerra delivers on a promise of right materials, right cost, right time, and right quality. Trevor is currently on the boards of Steelwedge, a cloud-based supply chain planning provider, and VendOp, a B2B vendor review platform
