iUNU Adds Two New Execs

iUNU, a Seattle based developer of AI and computer vision greenhouse management systems, recently hired Alexander Tokman as president and Dennis Riling as vice president of sales and marketing.

As president,  Tokman will be responsible for delivering on the company’s operating plan and leading day-to-day activities.

“We are excited to welcome Alex to the iUNU family. He joined us initially as an advisor in the middle of 2020 and helped us with strategic relationships as well as building operational excellence … he has a proven track record of successful leadership from private to public companies,” said Adam Greenberg, CEO of iUNU. “Now that we are scaling our industry platform, LUNA. greenhouse growers are demanding comprehensive actionable data and we look forward to leveraging Alex’s experience and leadership in scaling new technology businesses to accelerate iUNU’s growth.”

Tokman has 20+ years of global, cross-functional P&L leadership, specializing in creating and growing new technology businesses across several industries including health care, IT, imaging, AI, consumer electronics, and semiconductors.

“Over the past year I was fortunate to work with several promising technology companies in different industries, each with significant promise, but only one of them possessed the rare combination of unbelievable market opportunity, truly differentiating technology, robust business model, and an excellent team of dedicated professionals,” said Tokman. “I’m thrilled to be a part of iUNU family and look forward to working side-by-side with the team to help the company realize its full potential.”

As vice president of sales and marketing, Dennis Riling is responsible for managing key relationships, bringing future products to markets in the U.S. and globally, and leading the iUNU sales team.  Riling brings 15 years of experience to the company, 12 of which are in agronomy, greenhouses and indoor growing technology.

“We are excited to welcome Dennis to the iUNU family. His track record of success will help expand our footprint in the marketplace and his knowledge of the industry will allow him to be a partner with greenhouse operators,” said Greenberg. “ What impressed me the most about Dennis is his dedication to working with growers to solve their problems and putting iUNU alongside them with actionable data that they can use immediately. This is about driving value for growers and ensuring measurable ROI, putting growers first and iUNU second.”

Riling has a demonstrated track record in driving revenue growth, expanding into new markets, and building strong relationships with customers. His achievements in the military, at Liberty Hill Farms, Delaware Valley University, as CEO of a vertical farming company and as vice president of business development at a large LED company, demonstrate his abilities to lead the sales and marketing operation at iUNU.

“This is a very exciting time to be part of the iUNU family. We have a strong team that understands the full potential of the benefits that the LUNA system offers to indoor growers in every country,” said Riling. “We have the opportunity to help growers use AI and robotics to transform the way they operate.”
