Google hires Ivy Ross as the new lead of Google Glass

After the Lead Electrical Engineer Adrian Wong left Google to work with OculusGoogle hired Ivy Ross as the new head of Google Glasswhich would be her first position at Google, and by looking at her experience in companies like Calvin Klein, Swatch, Coach, Mattel, Bausch & Lomb, Gap, and recently, she is clearly new to the tech world as well, but that doesn't mean it's a bad thing, because Google Glass needs to be more appealing to the public.

According to her Statement her previous rolls were based “at the intersection of design and marketing,” which is pretty useful for Google Glass.

This is her full statement:

"My name is Ivy Ross, and I’m excited to be joining Google on Monday, May 19 to lead our Glass efforts. With your help, I look forward to answering the seemingly simple, but truly audacious questions Glass poses: Can technology be something that frees us up and keeps us in the moment, rather than taking us out of it? Can it help us look up and out at the world around us, and the people who share it with us? I have spent my career--Calvin Klein, Swatch, Coach, Mattel, Bausch & Lomb, Gap and, most recently, the intersection of design and marketing, trying to answer questions like this in different ways, for different products. But Glass is especially cool, as no one has really tried to answer them with a product like this before. That’s our job, Explorers! I'm just getting started on Glass, but, because of all of you, and your thoughtful and smart feedback, I feel like I have an incredible head start. And I look forward to learning even more from you, and experiencing Glass together."
