Matthias Pusch

EVP Sales and Marketing

WorldViz Co-Founder and Jack of all trades, Matthias Pusch goes the extra mile to provide the perfect VR solution for each client.

How long have you worked for WorldViz?

First time I used WorldViz software was in 1998, for a project that was paid by the Air Force. Then I worked for WorldViz since 2002.

What excites you the most about working for WorldViz?

I believe in the intrinsic value of VR for certain use cases, and I love being part of the process of crystallizing the value for each customer, and in the end creating real value for our customers.

What’s your favorite thing about VR?

That it helps me avoid pain-staking travel, and I can now connect in a meaningful (and unprecedented) way with customers directly from my home and spend more valuable time with my family.

If you could meet one person in Vizible, dead or alive, who would it be?

Probably Jules Verne, but there are many others I’d be interested in meeting…

Do you have any hidden talents, if so what are they?

Hmm, not sure – I’m a trained clinical Psychologist, but not sure if that’s a talent or a curse.

What’s your hometown?

My German house is in a small village in Germany called Stuecht. Amazing place with some 20 other houses there, and a pretty large beer festival every year 🙂 .

What’s your favorite ice cream flavor?

Banana.

What’s the last book you read?

Right now I’m reading ‘God’s hammer’ by Eric Schumacher.

What’s a book you would recommend others to read?

The book “Daemon” by Daniel Suarez is a piece of tech sci-fi that’s amazing, given it was published in 2006 and pretty much predicts self driving cars, Pokemon Go and many other things that are happening right now…

Pepsi or Coke?

Avoiding both.

Do pineapples belong on pizza?

Ok for me.

Who would play you in the film of your life?

Johnny Depp, which is in a way funny because Depp means ‘idiot’ in slang Franconian (subdialect of German).
