The former HTC, Google, and MTGx executive joins EON Reality to assist with investments, marketing, and sales strategy.

EON Reality, the world leader in Augmented and Virtual Reality-based knowledge and skills transfer for industry and education, announces the addition of Rikard Steiber to its global Advisory Board.

After serving as one of the most well-known executives in the VR industry for 4 years, Steiber recently left his position as the President of Viveport at HTC. Following a lengthy career as the Global Marketing Director for Google and the CEO of MTGx, Steiber’s tenure as one of the brightest minds in cutting-edge technology has made him a vocal and powerful contributor to the Augmented and Virtual Reality industry. He now leads Einride’s expansion into the US market with their autonomous electric transport solutions.

Steiber is also a vocal “technology for good” advocate, starting a $10M VR for Impact initiative and Women in Tech movement. Now, he looks forward to bringing some of the wisdom he’s gathered to EON Reality as a part of the multi-industry Advisory Board.

“In the current world of social distancing, we can train our students, employees and brave COVID-19 first responders using VR and AR. I believe EON Reality can help schools, businesses, and hospitals with new immersive training solutions.”

From EON Reality’s perspective, introducing Steiber to the team in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic couldn’t happen at a better time. With billions of people forced to learn, work, and live remotely — combined with the release of EON Reality’s Global Emergency Initiative — more users are turning to the updated EON-XR Platform than ever before. By adding new influential voices throughout this process, the company is able to continue to expand its high-level goals and ideas without needing to shift resources away from the current international push.

“With EON Reality fully committing to our Global Emergency Initiative, we’ve been able to help teachers, trainers, and students around the world as they shift their lives to continue practicing social distancing measures. Bringing in someone like Rikard Steiber to advise and assist us during this time — and for the foreseeable future — will allow us to reach new heights in many different ways. We are extremely excited to have Rikard and his historic track record join our team as we continue to change how the world views remote education and training.”
