Unity Software analysts weigh in on leadership changes

Unity Leadership

Unity Software Inc., a leading platform for creating and operating real-time 3D content, has faced significant challenges over the past year. The company’s stock has declined by more than 60%, with investors expressing disappointment over decelerating growth, persistent losses, and uncertain future plans. Despite these setbacks, Unity has made several notable leadership changes in recent months, reflecting the company’s strategic moves toward sustained growth and innovation.

Alon Tvina has been named CEO of Webonise US, LLC, while Anirma Gupta has been appointed as Senior Vice President and General Counsel at Unity Software Inc. The company has also added Michelle K. Lee, former Under Secretary of Commerce for Intellectual Property and Director of the United States Patent and Trademark Office, to its Board of Directors.

Keisha Smith-Jeremie, Chief People Officer at Tory Burch, has also joined Unity’s Board. In April, Unity welcomed Luis Felipe Visoso as Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer. CEO John Riccitiello emphasized Visoso’s experience at top-tier organizations like Palo Alto Networks, Amazon Web Services, and Procter & Gamble.

Matthew Bromberg has been appointed as the new CEO, effective May 15, 2024.

Bromberg will also join the Unity Board of Directors, while Interim CEO Jim Whitehurst will transition to the role of Executive Chair of the Board.

Unity has also been involved in collaborations and industry initiatives. The company partnered with TheXPlace to launch the Summer Game Jam, encouraging developers to create games using Unity’s AI technology, Unity Muse. In a significant industry move, DNEG, a leading visual entertainment services company, acquired the exclusive license to Ziva, a sophisticated toolset for digital character creation, from Unity.
