Title: Head of Global Support and Safety
Company: Amazon Robotics
Location: Lancaster, South Carolina, United States
Stanley Roberts, Head of Global Support and Safety at Amazon Robotics, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Executives for dedication, achievements, and leadership in manufacturing administration.
Mr. Roberts initially obtained a Bachelor of Science in aviation maintenance and management from Lewis University in Romeoville, Illinois in 1988. He later continued his education with a Master of Business Administration from Mount Mercy University in Cedar Rapids, Iowa in 2010. He holds certifications as a Project Management Professional (PMP) and in Airframe and Powerplant (A&P) and with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
After providing superior service with GM Aircraft Maintenance Operations with United Airlines at O’Hare International Airport in Chicago from 1996 to 2004, Mr. Roberts excelled with premier avionics and information technology systems Rockwell Collins as a regional manager of North and South America operations from 2006 to 2009 and general manager of government and commercial systems from 2009 to 2011. He then prospered as vice president of engineering excellence and project management with Ingersoll Rand in Davidson, North Carolina from 2011 to 2017.
Mr. Roberts flourished as Head of the Global Program Management Office with Honeywell SPS Division at Honeywell, the leading aeronautics manufacturer Honeywell in Charlotte, North Carolina, from 2018 to 2022. Since the latter year, he has served as Head of Global Support and Safety (GSS) with robotic fulfillment systems Amazon Robotics in Boston, where his responsibilities include overseeing the support and safety team of 400 people that provide service solutions for Amazon fulfillment centers.
Inquisitive by nature, Mr. Roberts has always had an affinity for learning new things, which has helped provide him with a fresh perspective on life, career goals, politics, family and leadership, which ushered him to the level of career success he now enjoys at Amazon Robotics. He was first in his family to receive a college education and had never flown in an airplane prior to making a decision to attend Lewis University’s School of Aviation. It was a volunteer speaker on Career Day at his high school who happened to be an aircraft maintenance mechanic that inspired him to join the aviation industry. After working at multiple airlines and in Aerospace and Defense companies early on, his interest changed. He quickly pivoted and decided to develop the skills needed to lead in larger, more diverse companies outside of aerospace and defense.
Mr. Roberts considers his career highlight getting the opportunity to build a team and organization capable of taking new ideas from idea to launch. This included building the standard work, tools and processes to ensure successful launch and support. The work done there is still being utilized today. In the coming years, he hopes to keep advancing professionally at Amazon Robotics. Writing a book has always been part of his goals, as is being able to spend more time as a volunteer at schools in under-served communities providing math education assistance and mentorship to people who are struggling.
