In late 2020, Peggy Johnson took the reins as CEO, steering Magic Leap’s pivot away from an audience of consumers — those least able to shell out $2,300 for a mixed reality headset — to the deeper pockets of the enterprise market. We’re excited to have Johnson join us for a fireside chat at hardware stage in TechDigiPro outage 2023which will take place from September 19 to 21 in San Francisco.
The Magic Leap 2 headset, designed to improve productivity in multiple industries including healthcare, manufacturing, and defense, costs more than $3,000. We can’t wait to hear Johnson’s take on the move from AR to the enterprise, the future of consumer use, and the 800-pound gorilla that is Apple’s yet-to-be-announced mixed reality headset.
Prior to joining Magic Leap, Johnson served as Executive Vice President of Business Development at Microsoft, where she drove strategic partnerships and transactions to accelerate growth for the company and its customers.
Johnson also spent 24 years at Qualcomm, where he held various leadership roles in engineering, sales, marketing and business development. In addition, he led the Qualcomm Internet Services business unit.
Johnson earned a BS in electrical engineering from San Diego State University and currently serves as a member of BlackRock’s board of directors.
