Stadia director Buser moves to Google Cloud team

Google Stadia's Jack Buser is moving into the search giant's Cloud division.

As reported by Zdnet, he has been promoted to the role of director of global gaming solutions, having previously been director for games at the streaming platform since the start of 2016. Before that, he held roles at PlayStation and Dolby.

"Google Cloud sees incredible momentum across all industries, and gaming is one of the key verticals we are investing in," a Google spokesperson said.

VP of industry solutions over at Cloud Lori Mitchell-Keller, who Buser will be reporting into, added: "Jack's hire illustrates Google Cloud's continued investment into our global, customer-first gaming strategy, and his five years at Google will help open doors for broader strategic partnerships with customers across YouTube, Stadia, and more. Jack brings 20 years of experience within the industry as well as a unique blend of business and technical knowledge to further expand our ability to serve gaming customers."

Google insisted earlier this year that Stadia is "alive and well" following some high-profile departures and the firm closing down its first-party Stadia Games and Entertainment studios.
