Walter Delph, co-founder of Boston Consulting Group’s celebrated tech incubator Digital Ventures, has become the Chief Business Officer of Magic Leap, the fast-growing virtual reality company.
PLANTATION, FL, October 08, 2020 /24-7PressRelease/ — He joins Peggy Johnson, who left Microsoft earlier this summer to become CEO of the technology start-up. As Chief Business Officer, Walter will be responsible for the overall leadership of the Company’s business teams including Strategy, Marketing, Corporate Communications, Sales, Business Development, and M&A. Said CEO Peggy Johnson, “Walter brings decades of experience creating value by integrating new technologies for established Fortune 500 firms thanks to his time as an operator and investor. He has also spent extensive time as a digital entrepreneur and fundamentally understands how to leverage the world-class technology and resources at Magic Leap.”
Magic Leap was founded in 2010 and has attracted investors including Google, Alibaba and AT&T. The firm’s virtual reality technology makes it possible for businesses to engage in spatial computing anywhere in the world and promises to deliver huge cost savings on training and travel while significantly reducing their carbon footprint.
Delph said: “I am delighted to be joining Magic Leap at such an exciting stage in its development. Magic Leap’s revolutionary technology has the ability to completely transform the way that businesses are able to deliver mission-critical services to their customers and employees, and I am looking forward to partnering with them on that journey.”
Magic Leap’s offerings are particularly timely in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic as millions of employees around the world have transitioned to remote work and businesses look for better ways of engaging with their customers and teams in response to this shift.
Delph’s appointment comes as the company shifts its focus to providing businesses with solutions and services to enable them to deliver specialised skills training in medicine, manufacturing, defence and other areas.
Delph previously worked at Boston Consulting Group where he co-founded Digital Ventures, BCG’s tech incubator which became the fastest growing division in the firm’s history.
He now serves on the boards of several companies in the US, Europe and in Asia and is passionate about promoting racial equality in corporate America.
