Penny Pritzker joins a drone board

September 14th, 2017

Penny Pritzker  has ramped up her business and philanthropic work. She’s joined the board of the Obama Foundation. And she’s been named to the corporate board of Measure, a start-up company that uses drones to collect data for other businesses.

Measure recently provided aerial coverage for TV stations during Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.

This is the first corporate board Pritzker has joined since serving as U.S. Commerce Secretary.

She’s founder and chairman of PSP Capital, a Chicago investment firm whose subsidiary, PSP Growth, has invested in Measure.

In a release announcing the appointment, Pritzker said she sees drones helping “revolutionize” the business world and how it collects and produces data.
