Magnus brings a passion for aeronautics and 3D mapping to Vricon, where he serves as the company’s CEO. Prior to taking this leadership position, Magnus held a number of leadership positions at Saab, as well as IBM and Framfab. Not only is Magnus an accomplished pilot, he also builds the planes he flies.
Eric comes to Vricon with global experience in big data and cyber security, as well as software development and sales. He’s held a number of leadership positions at Digital Reasoning, Endeca, Perceptive Pixel, and many more. Perhaps most intriguing, Eric served as an intelligence officer with the CIA for 11 years.
When Leif finished his Ph.D. in Computer Vision, he headed to Saab to work on sensor development and signal processing. Three of his projects at Saab later were developed as startup companies, and his work on 3D rapid mapping is at the core of Vricon technology. Of note, Leif holds 25 patents and patent applications.
Pär officially joined the Vricon team in October 2015, but was instrumental in setting up the company’s operations as a senior advisor prior to this. He started his career as a programmer with IBM and has held numerous COO and CEO positions previously. Pär has sold all Vricon employees on Fika—a Swedish tradition of sharing baked goods and company news on Friday afternoons—and now is working to convert us into fans of Ikea’s “Kalles kaviar”—a creamed smoked cod roe paste.
Per’s background in management is broad and deep, with 20+ years at Ericsson designing, testing, training, and managing programs in Denmark, Germany, and Sweden. Per also has a knack for small business, as he’s worked as a CTO for a small firm. What attracted him to Vricon? He spotted the opening on LinkedIn and was eager to be part of our journey.
Ramsey is no stranger to the satellite imagery business, having previously served as the VP for Financial Systems and Site Controller for DigitalGlobe. Prior to this, he spearheaded the implementation of Sarbanes-Oxley compliance at a software company, which is no small task. What most folks don’t know about Ramsey is that he’s fluent in Spanish and a North Carolina Tar Heel.
Manne comes to Vricon with extensive experience in software and imagery solutions from the defense and space community. Before joining Vricon, Manne held leadership positions at Saab and Image Systems. With an MS in Computer Science and Engineering from the University of Linköping, he’s a natural fit at Vricon.
Craig joined Vricon early in 2015, making him one of the company’s first employees. No stranger to the intelligence and defense communities, he started his career at the CIA and has held leadership positions at BAE Systems, DigitalGlobe, and Leidos. Craig also is a professional photographer whose portfolio includes official snaps of President Clinton’s inaugural ball.
Barry brings a unique background in the Defense and Intelligence communities, having worked in remote sensing systems design and user support for a range of customers. He also has extensive experience in international technical collaboration with countries ranging from Albania to the United Kingdom. We’re not sure, however, if Barry has engaged in extraterrestrial collaboration, as he is a huge fan of Marvin the Martian.
Isaac is an engineer at heart and comes to Vricon via Urban Robotics, where he was the CTO. Isaac’s passion focuses on overcoming the challenges presented by 3D imagery data sets, and he’s done this in military theaters around the world. Isaac grew up in the Pacific Northwest and views it as one of the best places to live – we think this view is influenced by easy access to Voodoo donuts.
