Geomagic CEO sitting with First Lady at State of the Union

Ping Fu, CEO of Geomagic and one of the leaders of the 3D scanning community, has been invited to sit with the First Lady during tonight's State of the Union address.

Earlier this month Ms. Fu was part of a group of CEOs that met with the President and Whitehouse staff as part of the White House Forum on Modernizing Government.

According to an interview with the News & Observer:
"Fu assumes that administration officials wanted someone who represents "game-changing" small or medium companies that created jobs in 2009.

"Somebody was impressed with my company and the things I said" during a CEO technology forum at the White House on Jan. 14, Fu said. "The economy is the main issue, and creating jobs."

Congratulations Ping!
