Metaverse Startup Hadean Appoints Former Amazon Executive Royal O'Brien as CTO
Hadean's $30M-Funded Metaverse Platform Secures Experienced Leader to Drive Growth.
Hadean, a metaverse startup that uses spatial computing to develop tools and technology required to build metaverse experiences, has appointed Royal O'Brien as its new Chief Technology Officer (CTO). O'Brien brings a wealth of gaming and tech experience to Hadean, having held multiple positions in the gaming and tech divisions at Amazon between 2017 and 2021. He also previously worked at Linux Foundation, overseeing its digital media and games unit.
In his new role, O'Brien will oversee Hadean's continued development of its spatial computing technology across commercial and defence divisions. He will also be responsible for driving the company's strategic partnerships with other metaverse companies.
"I'm excited to join Hadean at such a pivotal time in the development of the metaverse," said O'Brien. "The company has the potential to be a major player in this space, and I'm looking forward to helping them build the future of spatial computing."
Hadean's CEO, Craig Beddis, said that O'Brien was the perfect choice to lead the company's technology team.
"Royal is one of the pioneers and driving forces of an open, interoperable metaverse," said Beddis. "His vision of what the true metaverse should be is aligned with our own, and I'm confident that he will help us to achieve our goals."
Hadean's appointment of O'Brien is a major coup for the company. He is a respected figure in the gaming and tech industry, and his experience will be invaluable to Hadean as it continues to grow.
The metaverse is a rapidly growing market, and Hadean is well-positioned to capitalize on this growth. With O'Brien at the helm of its technology team, Hadean is well-placed to become a leading player in the metaverse space.
Hadean was founded in 2020 by Craig Beddis and James Tompkins. The company is headquartered in London, England. Hadean's mission is to "build the open, interoperable metaverse." The company's technology allows developers to create immersive and interactive metaverse experiences.
Hadean has raised $30 million in funding to date. Its investors include Molten Ventures, Epic Games, 2050 Capital, and Alumni Ventures.
