MEET OUR TEAM:

Richard Platt

Richard is the President of vSpatial and directs all the development efforts of our development team.

Among his other ventures prior to founding vSpatial, Richard was the technical founder of Selsius Systems which was acquired by Cisco Systems in 1998 for about $150M. Under his engineering leadership at Cisco, these original Selsius products became the Cisco Call Manager and Cisco IP Phone lines which today are a multi-billion dollar business for Cisco. Richard went on to function as a VP/GM at Cisco for a new business venture focused on small business products which he helped grow from $0 to $200M over 3 years. Richard is an author/co-author of many patents in the field of networking and communications.
