Vancouver, BC, July 25, 2023--(T-Net)--Sanctuary AI announced today that it has added two new members to its senior management team at the VP level.

Matt joins Sanctuary AI as VP of Customer Experience, and will be responsible for designing and running the company's Customer Experience processes.
Vince joins the company as VP of Hardware and Manufacturing, and takes on responsibility for those parts of the organization as the company scales.
