By Volansi Inc. | March 10, 2020

Volansi Inc., an on-demand drone delivery service, has hired Daniel Buchmueller as Chief Technology Officer. Buchmueller, a pioneering force within the drone delivery industry, will spearhead engineering efforts at Volansi, as well as set the direction for the company’s future unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) and systems technology.

Prior to joining Volansi, Buchmueller was vice president, head of drone cargo by Airbus and co-founder of Amazon PrimeAir.

“I was attracted to Volansi after seeing the VOLY C10 fly. What they are doing is real and now,” Buchmueller said. “I believe in the company’s mission to make the world of the future a more accessible place and I think that UAV technology is the best multiplier to truly create change.”

Known across the industry as a passionate and fearless engineer, Buchmueller has extensive experience leading teams. “The incredibly talented people, the professionalism of Volansi’s flight operations, the culture instilled in the company, and the pragmatic execution of customer projects is ultimately what excites me the most about joining the team,” said Buchmueller. “These are the building blocks that will allow us to make the impossible possible within the drone delivery industry.”

“We are excited to have Daniel join our leadership team,” Hannan Parvizian, co-founder and CEO of Volansi, said. “We believe our technology is part of a global revolution in transportation, and Daniel is the kind of bold thinker we need to help Volansi revolutionize the way the world thinks about deliveries and how goods move.”

Volansi was founded in California in 2015 as a direct response to inventory and supply chain problems at Tesla. Founders Hannan Parvizian and Wesley Zheng saw that emerging drone technologies could be used to drastically improve the way Tesla was serving its customers.

The company now has a vertical take off and landing drone platform capable of fully autonomous flight and delivery.
