Dynepic Names Arthur Goikhman Chief Technology Officer 

Goikhman will help steer the company as it continues to build the backbone of the military metaverse 

From Wall Street to gaming to eXtended Reality (XR) training, Arthur Goikhman has been ahead of the curve in the tech industry for several decades. Today, Dynepic® is thrilled to announce he has taken on the role of Chief Technology Officer! 

“I am living proof of the cliche that if you love your job, you’ll never work a day in your life,” Arthur shared. “I’m so confident in Dynepic’s mission and trajectory, taking on this new role was an easy choice.”

For the past few years, Arthur has helped fuel Dynepic as the SVP of XR Innovation, seeing the company through significant growth, opportunities and small business challenges. His new role represents the continued expansion of the company and is reflective of his breadth of experience and knowledge. 

“Arthur’s passion for technology is in his DNA - aside from his family, his hobbies and free time are organically rooted in future tech and what’s next,” said Krissa Watry, Co-Founder, and CEO of Dynepic. “Having him take on the CTO role has been a natural progression of his contributions to Dynepic and its future.”

The Road to Dynepic 

A first-generation immigrant who changed his major to Computer Science when he learned you could get paid to be innovative, Arthur kicked off his storied career on Wall Street creating bond and option pricing models, then producing real-time market data and first-gen web online trading systems - a “baptism by fire” as he described it. A few years later, Arthur was working with Morgan Stanley in New York’s twin towers on 9/11; by a stroke of luck, he wasn’t in the office that morning but was part of the data recovery team that brought US trading markets back online the following Monday. Seeing an obvious need for supporting capabilities in early web conferencing, Arthur was a pioneer holding key patents such as “Active Talker Detection” which is still used today. 

With a lifelong entrepreneurial spirit, Arthur also started five different tech companies including a mobile game company in 2005 and SurrealVR, one of the first platform-agnostic virtual reality companies (VR) that helped lay the groundwork for immersive collaboration in the Metaverse. The company was acquired by Dynepic last year to bring multiplayer training to its MOTAR platform. 

“I still can’t believe people get paid to do this work!” Arthur mused. “Being the immigrant son of a man who spent time in concentration camps just dreaming of American freedom, I’m grateful and excited to be part of something with the potential to improve the lives of everyone in the US and beyond.” 

On the Horizon 

Arthur’s role as CTO is effective immediately, and while his role will shift, his interests remain unchanged. 

“Dynepic is the most perfect product fit I’ve ever seen in my life, and I’m super excited about where we’re headed,” he said. “This team truly never stops!”
