The Future of Fishbowl Products by Kendrick Hair

Kendrick Hair is a presenter at the Inventory Management + Growth Summit.

Kendrick Hair is the Chief Technology Officer at Fishbowl. The company is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. It’s helped to have quite a few members on the team who’ve been there for many years.
