“Chris O’Neill, the business chief for Google Glass, is leaving the position after thirteen months,” Mark Bergen reports for Re/code. “O’Neill was named head of global business operations at Google X, the company’s moonshot division, in May 2014, the same month Google hired design and marketing exec Ivy Ross as its maiden chief executive.”
“In January, Google shut down its Explorer Program, which sold the headset for $1,500,” Bergen reports. “Although Glass shut down consumer sales, it has kept its enterprise operation open, selling the headgear to companies like automotive and medical equipment manufacturers.”
“O’Neill came to Glass after four years as managing director for Google Canada,” Bergen reports. “Earlier, he was the director of retail for the company and held finance and sales roles at Google, which he joined in 2005.”
