Oculus is bringing a new COO aboard as it maybe looks to double down on tightening things adult logistics-wise.

Fitbit COO Hans Hartmann will be jumping ship and joining the practical existence association owned by Facebook, according to a twitter from Oculus CEO Brendan Iribe. Hartmann, who was with Fitbit since 2011, will be replacing first COO Laird Malamed, who Iribe says will be “taking on a new executive purpose assisting [Oculus] scale a business to move practical existence to millions around a world.”

CEO Brendan Iribe’s note that Hartmann has “decades of hardware, production and supply sequence experience” is positively good news given a supply struggles that a practical existence association has endured with a launch of their Rift VR headset, that is still struggling to keep adult with pre-orders.
