Quantum Brilliance, a company specializing in developing small-scale quantum computing products and solutions that work at room temperature, has announced the appointment of Mark Luo as their new Chief Executive Officer (CEO). The former CEO and co-founder of the company, Andrew Horsley, will take on the role of Chief Technology Officer (CTO), where he will focus on leading the development of the company’s product engineering roadmap.
Quantum Brilliance, established in 2019, uses synthetic diamonds to create quantum computers that can operate at room temperature in any environment, consuming significantly less power than larger quantum mainframe computers. The company is working on miniaturizing its technology to the size of semiconductor chips that can be used on any device, unlocking practical quantum computing for everyone.
Mark Luo is also a co-founder of Quantum Brilliance and has previously served as the company’s Chief Operating Officer (COO). In this position, he played a key role in expanding Quantum Brilliance into Germany, installing the world’s first room-temperature quantum computer in a supercomputing center, and forming a partnership with NVIDIA.
A phase of New Leadership
Quantum Brilliance has moved forward and changed its leadership team, with Mark Luo taking over as CEO and Andrew Horsley moving to the CTO role. The company has succeeded in expanding into new markets and partnerships. These leadership changes are intended to help continue the growth and development of new quantum computing products and solutions.
Mark Luo previously worked as the New Ventures Manager for Australia’s National Science Agency, where he helped scientists bring their ideas to market. He has experience executing offshore growth strategies and is a seasoned investor and analyst for global venture capital and private equity operations. Luo holds a bachelor’s degree in finance with distinction from the University of New South Wales and is a graduate of the Australian Institute of Company Directors (AICD).
