Three top Magic Leap leaders — boss innovation official Paul Greco, head working official Henk Vlietstra, and boss patent official David Lundmark — are apparently leaving in the coming months. Insider revealed the news yesterday, saying that Magic Leap has likewise rehired its previous head promoting official Daniel Diez.
It's not satisfactory precisely why Greco, Vlietstra, and Lundmark are leaving the organization. In any case, Insider says Greco couldn't help contradicting Magic Leap CEO Peggy Johnson — who supplanted prime supporter Rony Abovitz a year ago — over a decision to move the product division out of the CTO's domain. A large portion of Vlietstra and Lundmark's obligations are purportedly moving to different leaders at Magic Leap.
Greco and Vlietstra have both been at the organization since 2013; Greco was the organization's VP of equipment prior to being named CTO in 2020, and Vlietstra was named COO in 2018. In the mean time, Diez is obviously getting back to Magic Leap this month in the wake of withdrawing in 2020, a year that saw Magic Leap scale down an immense segment of its labor force. A Magic Leap representative declined to remark on Insider's story.
Magic Leap has changed direction significantly since its establishing in 2010 — advancing from a diversion organization to an expanded reality tech startup, then, at that point accepting almost $3 billion in subsidizing for a purchaser cordial AR headset, lastly rotating to big business clients before its emotional constriction a year ago. It's proceeded with that rotate under Johnson, a previous Microsoft leader, and plans to deliver a second-age headset in restricted amounts by late 2021.
