In late 2020, Peggy Johnson took the lead as CEO, guiding Magic Leap’s pivot away from a consumer audience — those less able to shell out $2,300 for a mixed reality headset — into the deeper pockets of the enterprise market. We are delighted to have Johnson join us for a fireside chat the hardware phase bee MinRegion disrupts 2023which takes place September 19–21 in San Francisco.
The Magic Leap 2 headset, designed to improve productivity across multiple industries such as healthcare, manufacturing, and defense, costs more than $3,000. We’re eager to hear Johnson’s take on AR’s move into business, 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 led strategic partnerships and transactions to accelerate the growth of the company and its customers.
Johnson also spent 24 years at Qualcomm, where she held various engineering, sales, marketing and business development leadership roles. She also led the Qualcomm Internet Services business unit.
Johnson earned a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from San Diego State University and is currently a board member for BlackRock.
