New Hires in Mobile: Gameloft, Glu Mobile, Millennial Media & More

The volume of hires from last week has declined in the past seven days as data from LinkedIn, and other sources, with new activity from six mobile developers. Nonetheless, there were at least two higher level hirings of note from Papaya Mobile and Millennial Media. In terms of the former, Maggie Wu joins the team as its new business development director. She was previously the business development director at MIKI Capsule Toys Trading (Shen Zhen) Company Limited. Regarding Millennial Media, Max Nelson is highlighted as the company’s new corporate communications manager. That said, this is merely to be a late update as he has been with the company since April.
