InReality, a venue analytics software solution company, has appointed digital signage veteran Ryan Cahoy as its new chief revenue officer.
InReality’s venue analytics platform harnesses multiple sensor technologies and data streams into one simple view of the most important metrics and KPI’s for businesses and retailers. In April, the company became one of the first companies in the AV industry to dedicate themselves towards helping companies address the complexities and challenges of managing occupancy risks related to COVID-19.
Cahoy joined Daktronics at 19 years old, before joining Rise Vision after five years with the company. He then spent almost two decades with Rise Vision, growing the company and eventually becoming its managing director.
“I have always described myself as someone that helps people use technology to create spaces that make customers stop and say ‘wow’,” said Cahoy. “I’ve known the InReality leadership team for decades and, like them, never thought I’d one day use my skills and product to help businesses literally stay in business. I’ve been with the company a mere handful of weeks, and we’ve already accomplished monumental things. It’s exciting to play a role in this momentum.”
Ron Levac, InReality CEO, added: “We’ve known Ryan as both a respected industry leader and friend. Getting into this Safe Space world was a bet early on, but we felt strongly about our ability to help address the challenges enterprise businesses would face. We were right, and the resulting growth required a unique talent to help steer us forward. We collectively considered the top pick for this critical role, and Ryan was the person we all chose. We’re over the moon to have him, and the value that he brings to every internal and partner conversation is already apparent.”
“We have a very tight-knit industry, and I’ve had the pleasure of knowing and working with many incredible people and companies,” Cahoy continued. “The opportunity to bring the power of this incredible software platform to support such an important purpose is thrilling. We’ve had to move faster than we thought possible, and our early pilots have informed our product in ways that will save both sensor manufacturers and end users monumental headaches and investment risk. I look forward to expanding our network of partners with the many companies in my inner circle, while also expanding it with new ones.”
