Matt Hunter, formerly with DroneDeploy, has joined Austin, Texas-based drone analytics company Hangar Technology Inc. as chief product officer.
According to Hangar, Hunter brings nearly two decades of experience leading the product teams of start-ups as they navigate periods of growth. At app market intelligence company App Annie, he helped scale the organization to over 500 employees and expand to 12 offices globally. Most recently, he ran product management, marketing and design for San Francisco-based DroneDeploy. Collectively, Hunter has raised over $175 million in funding from venture capitalists.
“Matt brings a unique mix of industry and product experience and has a proven track record of cultivating product and engineering teams,” says Scott Lumish, CEO of Hangar. “As we expand our platform and put drones to increasingly valuable work, we look forward to the leadership he’ll add.”
“We’re entering a new era of business intelligence where drones are making it possible to scan, measure and count every element of the physical environment,” says Hunter. “That data creates insights which help businesses lower costs, increase productivity and ultimately drive faster growth. It’s a transformative technology, and Hangar is leading the way. I’m looking forward to joining Scott’s team and building on the great work this team has already done.”
