Payment solutions firm Square Inc has poached Blizzard Entertainment CFO Amrita Ahuja.

Over her eight year tenure with the developer, Ahuja held a number of finance and strategy roles including senior vice president of investor relations, vice president of finance and strategy, and vice president of strategy and business development.

Her new role at Square Inc will see her reporting to Jack Dorsey, CEO and co-founder of Twitter.

"In Amrita, we have found an amazing, multidimensional business leader," said Dorsey.

"Amrita brings the ability to consider and balance opportunities across our entire business, and she will help strengthen our discipline as we invest, build, and scale.

"She is willing to challenge herself and others, has the courage to take principled risks, and is passionate about our customers and our purpose."
