Seattle, WA June 14, 2017 - Impinj (PI), a leading provider of RAIN RFID solutions, today announced that Jennifer Armstrong-Owen has joined the company as vice president of people, environment, and culture.

Armstrong-Owen will focus on employee and leadership development to support Impinj’s growth, and oversee the company’s future investments in people, environment and culture. Impinj has built a dynamic culture centered on innovation, action, commitment, and teamwork. Armstrong-Owen will strengthen this culture with programs designed to further empower employees, enhance team-effectiveness, and embrace diversity. The company is committed to social and environmental responsibility initiatives and will leverage Armstrong-Owen’s decades-long community service, including her experience in the Peace Corps.
