Why Oculus Technologies?
"I had reached a point in my career where I was looking for a new challenge. One still within the superyacht industry and one that would broaden my experience and knowledge. I knew Oculus Technologies from my time at Oceanco and I was inspired by their different way of thinking and refreshing approach. They were a company I became very interested in and am very happy to now be part of. Technology is becoming more and more important in everything we do and is set to change how we think about innovation on board of yachts, planes and other luxury transportations. I believe Oculus Technologies therefore has huge growth potential and will become an important player in these industries."
