RealWear Appoints Rama Oruganti as Chief Product Officer

RealWear, a global leader of assisted reality solutions, recently appointed Rama Oruganti as Chief Product Officer. Oruganti is responsible for the hardware, software, and services of the RealWear product portfolio.

Rama is a high-performing leader with demonstrated business and technology acumen in creating and scaling new products across Fortune 100, turnaround, and startup environments. He has a track record of rapidly excelling in diverse general management and COO functions from strategy to execution. Previously, Rama held product and general management roles at HP, Magellan, and Deere and technical roles at Intel. Rama has an MBA from the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth and an MS in Computer Engineering from UT Austin.

Due to the pandemic and the resulting travel restrictions, engineers were no longer able to travel to factories and facilities to support onsite technicians in person; as a result, RealWear quickly became the wearable device of choice for virtual, remote collaboration for troubleshooting equipment and performing quality checks, audits, inspections, plant tours, and product and factory acceptance tests (FAT). Spurred on by this success, leading collaboration companies — including Microsoft, Cisco, and Zoom — have custom-tailored their software to fully leverage RealWear’s assisted reality wearable solution that is the choice of frontline workers at some of the world’s prominent industrial brands.

In light of RealWear’s unprecedented growth over the past year, it recently opened a new Customer Experience Centre in Dubai Internet City to meet the growing demand for its products and services in the Middle East. The company also opened new offices in other major markets and recently announced that it has achieved a milestone of shipping wearable devices to more than 3,000 unique corporate customers worldwide in various industries.

ON Partners consultant Jeff Hocking is proud to have partnered with RealWear and Rama Oruganti on this successful placement. View more product appointments from ON here.
