Matterport set to become ‘Google Maps’ for buildings: New boss R.J Pittman talks ambitious plans and life beyond Apple, Google and eBay
This week on Tech Talk Radio, Emily Wright and Sam McClary talk to Matterport's new chief executive R.J Pittman, eBay's former CPO.
Pittman took the reigns at Matterport in December last year and has bold plans to expand the business beyond pure real estate to become "Google Maps" for the built environment.
He talks about why he has decided "now is the time" to turn his attention to a new generation of start-ups after years working at the world's best known tech giants including Apple, Google and eBay.
He also recounts the story of how bumping into Steve Jobs in line at Whole Foods in 1991 launched his career.
