Montreal-based AIRY3D announced that Paul K. Gallagher, a 30-year veteran of the imaging industry, has joined the 3D computer vision startup as vice president of strategic marketing.
Gallagher has held executive and product leadership roles at top original equipment manufacturers of imaging sensors including Samsung Electronics Company, OmniVision Technologies, Micron Technology (Aptina/ON Semi), and ST Micro (VLSI Vision). He most recently was at LG Electronics in San Jose where he led the company’s organic imager program. He is a thought leader in the field, industry speaker and a reference source for market research studies.
“I’m thrilled, once again, to be at the forefront of a new chapter in the imaging industry,” said Gallagher. “AIRY3D’s DepthIQTM platform has the potential to unlock numerous cutting edge industries with an affordable 3D computer vision solution. I am excited by the unrivaled simplicity of AIRY3D’s DepthIQ solution.”
“We are honored that such a leading authority and serial intrapreneur is joining AIRY3D,” added Dan Button, president and CEO of AIRY3D. “His technical and strategic knowledge of the imaging industry and our target markets will be invaluable as we scale up our partnerships with leading sensor OEMs and end-customers.”
In July 2018, AIRY3D raised US$10 million in an oversubscribed Series A funding round led by Intel Capital, to support its progress towards licensing the company’s DepthIQ 3D sensor platform to top-tier mobile OEMs this year.
