Eight360 Terry Miller Engineer of the Year

Learning how to CEO

Terry Miller’s quite comfortable being an engineer.

But the co-founder/CEO of Eight360, a unique spherical VR motion simulator, is much less comfortable in the role of company leader.

“An engineer solves technical problems,” says the Technology Valley Petone-based entrepreneur.

“A CEO runs a company, has to think of things that are not about engineering such as business, customers, strategy, people, networks.

“I’m still learning, and it's a long journey.

“It’s about mindset… Being open to change, because I never have enough time to get comfortable before the next thing happens.

“That’s partly why I give myself the title ‘Chaos Pilot’.”
