Andreas has held various senior positions at Ruag. In his current position as Product Unit Manager, Andreas is responsible for approximately 130 employees and the associated P&L responsibility, including sales, project implementation and customer delivery. Examples include all major US and European Aerospace companies, such as Airbus, Boeing, Lockheed Martin, ULA, and Thales.

Examples of customers are BMW, Mercedes, and Porsche. Andreas lives in Linköping and has a master’s degree in Applied Physics and Electrical Engineering from Linköping University.
"For a modern industrial company to be successful, it is necessary to be efficient and fast in problem solving. With that in mind, it is easy from an industrial perspective to see the superior value XMReality Remote Guidance can generate." says Andreas Jonsson. "I am convinced that the products and services XMReality has in its portfolio are necessary and are becoming increasingly important in effective cooperation between all different players in the market. I am very much looking forward to be a part of XMReality and contribute to its future development and success".
“Andreas' vast experience from international business with industrial customers is at the heart of XMReality and our forward-looking ambitions. The fact that Andreas also has experience from similar systems to our Remote Guidance solution where live video streams are analysed, used as decision support and communicated to a user are additional strengths we value. I am very pleased with this recruitment and am really looking forward to getting him on board,” says Jörgen Remmelg, CEO of XMReality.
