Jade Raymond appointed new VP at Google

EA Motive founder joins company just ahead of teased GDC reveal

Former EA Motive studio and Ubisoft Toronto founder Jade Raymond has announced today she has been appointed to a Vice President role at Google.

In a tweet today, Raymond announced her appointment by saying, "I'm excited to finally be able to share that I have joined Google as VP!" She did not offer further details.

This announcement comes just ahead of GDC, where Google has teased a gaming-related reveal. The company has reportedly been working on streaming technology for some time, under the project codename Yeti.

Raymond brings a wealth of industry experience to her new role, from early roles at Sony and EA, to over ten years at Ubisoft as the founder of Ubisoft Toronto and producer roles on multiple Assassin's Creed titles, Watch Dogs, and others, back to EA for over three years where she founded and oversaw Motive Studios. Raymond departed EA entirely in October of last year as Samantha Ryan was assigned to take over the studio Raymond founded.
