Edgybees appointed defense and sales executive Vincent Hearn as Global Business Development Director. Hearn will play a central role in the Edgybees’ growth as it expands operations to meet rising demand for augmented reality (AR)-enabled visual intelligence technology in the US.

“We’re thrilled to have Vincent join our ranks at a time when we’re working on a range of implementations with the US military, and know we’ll benefit greatly from his understanding of the military’s technological needs and how we can satisfy them,” said Adam Kaplan, CEO and co-founder of Edgybees. “Edgybees provides a unique blend of data, AR, and video analytics that can demystify operational environments of all kinds, and he’ll be instrumental in helping us implement this technology in a variety of sectors.”

Hearn joins the company after holding several sales positions in the technology and defense sectors. Previously, he served for 18 years with the US Air Force as Command Weapons Program Manager.

“Having served in the military for almost two decades, I understand the acute need for commanders to have a complete common operating picture when planning and executing operations, and Edgybees’ innovative technology meets this vital need,” noted Hearn.
