3VR Taps Oracle Vet to Lead Engineering Team
Masayuki Karahashi Named New Senior Vice President of Engineering
SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — 3VR, the video intelligence company, today announced that Masayuki Karahashi has been named senior vice president of engineering. Karahashi will lead the entire engineering department, including the development, quality assurance, professional services and support functions for 3VR.
Karahashi, who most recently was vice president of development for Oracle, brings a wealth of enterprise software experience to 3VR. He has developed products that are delivered as both licensed software and software as a service (SaaS).
