Cyanogen poaches executives from Electronic Arts, Facebook


Cyanogen has added two key executives to its ranks — Vivian Lee is a senior director of mobile product marketing at Electronics Arts. She will now serve as VP of marketing at Cyanogen. Sid Murlidhar, hired away from Facebook, will be heading third-party integrations into Cyanogen’s platform.

Murlidhar is best known for developing the Facebook Zero program as well as Facebook Home. Now, he’ll work to incorporate other software into the Cyanogen OS.

It’ll be interesting to see how these changes affect the company, but it’s interesting to note the hire of a female into company leadership shortly after Cyanogen’s partner, OnePlus, ran a contest that was deemed to be sexist by many.
