Bungie CFO joins mixed reality startup

Seattle-based mixed reality startup Taqtile has added a big new name to its leadership board: Brent Abrahamsen, the longtime CFO of video game company Bungie, the one-time Microsoft subsidiary that developed blockbuster game franchises like Halo and Destiny.

Abrahamsen worked as Bungie’s CFO for more than seven years, during which he negotiated the company’s 2007 departure from Microsoft, which had acquired it in 2000. He left Bungie in 2015 and worked as an independent contractor before joining Taqtile.

“I am excited to be joining a talented group of people working on such fascinating, cutting edge technology,” Abrahamsen said in a press release. “The opportunities in the mixed reality space are only just beginning and I look forward to helping Taqtile establish a leading market position as the technology and the related applications unfold.”

Taqtile builds enterprise software for virtual, augmented and mixed reality experiences. Last year it unveiled HoloMap, a collaborative 3D mapping app that was originally released for the Microsoft HoloLens. Its clients include Microsoft, Starbucks, AT&T and a number of international sports organizations.
