Its not uncommon for executives in large companies to swap between different businesses, due to personal interests or by being head-hunted because of experience. The later is probably the reason HEXXU has just announced the hiring of former Chief Financial Officer (CFO) of Sony Online Entertainment (SOE) and Director of Finance & Operations at the Walt Disney Company, Ken Dopher this week.
HEXXU is known for its ‘HEX process’ which simultaneously produces content for traditional media, augmented reality (AR), and virtual reality (VR). Rather than focusing on just one of these formats, HEXXU delivers solutions for all three, providing a full spectrum of original stories and experiences to choose from. As the company continues its forward growth, it needs experienced individuals to help in the process.
With the appointment of Mr Dopher, HEXXU is gaining his 15+ years of experience of being a CFO for startups and Fortune 500 companies alike. “With the upcoming release of so much AR/VR hardware, HEXXU is positioning itself to be a premier content provider with the ability to license its proprietary technology across the industry,” said Dopher, the new CFO for HEXXU in a statement. “I’m excited to be joining a group of experienced technologists and entrepreneurs working on the cutting edge of visual content.”
“We are thrilled to add such a high-caliber member to our team, especially one whose financial experience in the game development and movie industries fits into the world of AR and VR content creation so perfectly. We are truly poised to do great things with our team, technology, and talent,” added Richard Oesterreicher, President and CEO of HEXXU.
VRFocus will continue to follow all the latest news and announcements from the VR industry and report back.
