He has extensive global expertise with large manufacturing and supply chain companies, and RFID technology specializing in encoding and numbering standards. As an active member of several AIM and RAIN RFID workgroups, Brown has been a vocal participant helping to identify, discuss, and educate on industry challenges.

“We place a high value in serving the AIDC community and are very pleased that Chris’s contributions to the industry have been recognized by AIM. Chris has worked tirelessly to ensure the marketplace is aware of key RFID information, including numbering systems and encoding, educating people across a wide range of platforms,” said Andy Edwards, Director of Product Management at TSC Printronix Auto ID. Edwards added that “the work Chris is doing around RFID encoding schemas is very important for the industry, and we look forward to continuing to educate on this topic.”
