CEO of Mission Design & Automation Scot Lindemann joins A3 Robotics Technology Strategy Board

Mission Design & Automation (Mission) is proud to announce that Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Scot Lindemann was recently elected to the Robotics Technology Strategy Board of the Association for Advancing Automation (A3). Lindemann joined the board in January 2024 and is eager to support the initiatives of A3, North America’s largest automation trade association. A3 represents more than 1,300 organizations involved in robotics, artificial intelligence, machine vision & imaging, motion control & motors, and related automation technologies.

“It is an honor to be selected to serve on the board alongside such a passionate team, and a great opportunity to represent system integrators and influence the industry,” Lindemann said.

With over 30 years of experience in the automation and robotics sector, Lindemann has held several key leadership positions at prominent global automation and robotics companies including Mission, BACA Systems, and JR Automation. Although he is a new member of the Robotics Technology Strategy Board, he has a rich history of involvement in similar roles, having served on the Robotics Industry Association (RIA) Board of Directors from 2012 to 2018, which is now the robotics-focused branch under the A3 umbrella.

Beyond his involvement with A3, Lindemann has been active on other boards, such as the Lake Superior State University Board of Directors, and Lakeshore Advantage, a West Michigan nonprofit focused on economic development, where he served as a member and chairman.

Members of the A3 Robotics Technology Strategy Board come from various sectors of the industry, but Lindemann’s background as a systems integrator gives him a distinct perspective. He aims to be a voice for other robotics integration companies and the manufacturers they support.

“I am looking forward to helping more North American manufacturers successfully adopt robotics and fostering wider acceptance of automation in the industry through education, training, and advocacy,” Lindemann said.

“Industrial automation is here to stay. We are still at the infancy of robotics implementation, and there is significant growth on the horizon,” Lindemann added. “I’m eager to work alongside fellow board members again to shape A3’s strategy in robotics as the industry continues to rapidly evolve.”
