Varwin is on a mission to change the fabric of the virtual reality industry. To that end, we’ve worked hard to hire the best team, invest in the latest technology, and form connections with the brightest minds in technology today. One of the very brightest is Gary Fowler. An 11-time founder and AI expert, Gary and his co-founder Derek Distenfield started GSD Venture Studios to help companies like Varwin take their businesses to the next level.
We are excited to announce that Varwin has officially been accepted as a GSD Venture Studios portfolio company and that Gary Fowler is Varwin’s new CEO. By appointing Gary as CEO, his sound leadership will provide the motivation, direction, and purpose to ensure that Varwin’s difficult task of revolutionizing the VR industry will be carried out. Gary has worked with numerous young companies and is highly skilled at helping them get to the next level in their respective industries. We are excited to learn from him as he not only leads and guides our team of 50 highly motivated and resilient team members but also teaches our leadership team to make even better decisions about the future.
“I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to work with the Varwin team,” says Gary. “From the moment I read their first pitch deck I knew that they had the potential to make a significant impact on the VR industry and I knew GSD could help them get there.”
We are also excited to welcome Gary’s co-founder, Derek Distenfield, to the Varwin team as COO. Derek’s wealth of operational experience will streamline the people, processes, technology, marketing, and finances needed to drive awareness of Varwin’s mission and unique ability to make an impact on the VR industry. With Derek on our team, we are confident we will be able to level up our processes quickly to provide even better products for our customers.
“The Varwin team has welcomed us with open arms and has integrated us quickly and fully into their daily operations,” says Derek. “They truly want to change the fabric of the VR industry and are making the strategic decisions necessary to make that happen.”
Stay tuned for updates from our team over the next several months as we continue to work with the GSD team. We will be optimizing all areas of our business for maximum growth, efficiency, and profitability, and we will keep you updated all along the way. We’re very excited to have this opportunity to work with GSD and intend to learn as much as we can from the entire team.
“The opportunity to work with Gary, Derek, and the GSD Venture Studios team is one we are very grateful to have,” says Alex Dovzhikov, Chairman and Co-founder of Varwin. “This is the best decision we could have made for our business this year.”
Thank you for your continued support of Varwin. We are excited to have you with us on this journey and look forward to keeping you updated as we move forward. We are confident that the best is yet to come from our organization.
