The Aethon Management Team
Aldo Zini has been at the forefront of the technology revolution in robotics for more than 25 years. He continues that leadership as President and CEO of Aethon, a wholly owned independent subsidiary of ST Engineering, which acquired Aethon in 2017. As part of ST Engineering’s Land Systems Division, Aethon is well positioned to continue its global leadership in the development and deployment of autonomous mobile robots. Zini’s successes began long before taking the helm at Aethon in 2003. His contributions to technology driven companies have led to acquisitions worth more than a quarter of a billion dollars. In the mid-90’s, he played a key role in the development of the first robotic medication dispensing system for hospitals (ROBOT-Rx) which was acquired by McKesson Corporation in 1996. Prior to Aethon, Zini led McKesson’s marketing strategy for its automation and distribution business, and later became the Senior Vice President of Sales & Marketing for TechRx, one of the largest providers of software solutions to the pharmacy industry, which was sold to NDC Corporation for over $200 million. Zini owns several patents in medication dispensing and robotics technology, and is credited with the development of key methodologies in quantifying the value proposition around robotic platforms deployed in hundreds of customers worldwide. Zini received a BS in Industrial Engineering from the University of Pittsburgh and a master’s degree (MPM) from Carnegie Mellon University (1987).
