Mary Ann de Lares Norris has been involved in revolutionising technology ever since she graduated from the MIT Media Lab and UC Santa Cruz. However she reached a key milestone in her career when she landed the role of Vice President of EMEA activities at Oblong Industries in August 2016.

With more than two decades of research at the MIT Media Lab, Oblong Industries’ ingenious technologies are changing the game of human-machine interface in enterprises today.

Moreover Mary Ann de Lares Norris has been a part of the Oblong Industries’ family for many years as head of the European division, director of the UK, Spanish and German businesses based in France and eventually as Chief Operating Officer.

However before launching her career with Oblong Industries, Norris served as Chief Operating Officer of a Parisian interactive television company, Director of Strategic Planning at Mattel, Executive Producer at Sony Electronic Publishing and Producer at The Voyage Company.

With her CV and credentials, one can only wonder what she will bring next to the table for the tech industry as a whole.
