Matterport new CEO RJ Pittman

Matterport, which provides 3D virtual reality tours of listed homes for buyers and renters, named a former eBay executive and technology veteran as its new CEO.

RJ Pittman, the former chief product officer at eBay, will replace outgoing CEO Bill Brown who will continue to serve in an advisory role at Matterport, the company said Monday.

Sunnyvale, California-based Matterport, which has built a library of 1.4 million 3D models, has become popular among real estate agents as a way to do virtual walk-throughs of listings.

At eBay, Pittman oversaw product, design, engineering, mobile, payments, and brand. Before that, he led the global e-commerce platform for Apple’s online store, and has worked at Google. He is a co-founder and former CEO of Groxis, the advanced search engine technology company.

The company, which had $66 million in venture funding as of early 2018, was founded seven years ago.
