Volansi, an on-demand drone delivery service, has hired Daniel Buchmueller as Chief Technology Officer.
Buchmueller, formerly head of drone cargo by Airbus and co-founder of Amazon PrimeAir, is set to spearhead engineering efforts at Volansi.
He will also set the direction for the company’s future unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) and systems technology.
Commenting on his appointment, Buchmueller said: “I was attracted to Volansi after seeing the VOLY C10 fly. What they are doing is real and now. I believe in the company’s mission to make the world of the future a more accessible place and I think that UAV technology is the best multiplier to truly create change.
“The incredibly talented people, the professionalism of Volansi’s flight operations, the culture instilled in the company, and the pragmatic execution of customer projects is ultimately what excites me the most about joining the team.”
