Meet the Macrolynk Team

Saul Haro

President and CEO

Prior to Macrolynk, Saul managed supply chain and import/export operations for Mabe (GE Appliance Company) and Valeo Wiper Systems. Seeing that his people where spending far too much time doing manual record keeping, he started to explore ways to automate the process. By the mid 90's he had the first generation of what would become Macrolynk ready to take to market. Since founding Macrolynk in 1996, Saul has focused his energies on running the company, expanding the product line, and most recently, developing a new generation software-as-a-service (SAAS) implementation model. He also consults with senior management in business, government, and academia on supply chain operations. In his spare time, he is a frequent speaker and lecturer on Supply Chain Management and Global Trade Automation. Saul has a bachelor's degree in International Business from UASLP and lives with his wife and son in Austin, Texas.

Bill Petersen

Vice-President Business Development

Bill has over twenty-five years of experience in the supply chain market. His first exposure was as the head of marketing for the advanced research facility at Texas Instruments. At that time, TI was developing artificial intelligence-based decision support software, commonly called expert systems. He left TI to join CSTaR, the research center for Anderson Consulting (now Accenture) where he was Director of Marketing. In both companies, he found that most of the real-world applications of AI technology were in the area of decision support and optimization strategies. He left the research community and followed the market by going to work for several of the best-of-breed providers of warehouse and transportation management systems. He became involved with international trade management at Precision software, where he was responsible for sales and marketing. He joined Macrolynk in June of 2009, responsible for marketing and strategic planning. Bill holds a Bachelor's in Operations Research and an MBA in Marketing.
