Former Gov. Tim Pawlenty has been appointed to the RedPrairie Corporation’s Board of Directors, according to a press release.

The company announced today that the “well-established advocate for business” will join the board, effective immediately.

His appointment comes two months after his exit from the 2012 presidential race. Pawlenty, who has endorsed former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney in the Republican presidential race, said in the press release that the company is at the “forefront of the moment” connecting the supply chain and consumers.

Although Pawlenty has indicated that he is going to take a break from politics, he hasn’t abandoned the possibility of a future run for office.

The Star Tribune reported that during his portrait unveiling at the Capitol last week, the former governor hinted at some of his future plans, which might include consulting work.

RedPrairie is an international supply chain and retail technology provider based in Georgia. It has an Eden Prairie office.
