OnLive founder Steve Perlman is stepping down from his position as CEO at OnLive, despite last week's announcement that he would remain head of the company under Lauder Partners.
Replacing Perlman is OnLive's former operations head Charlie Jablonski. Regarding Perlman's departure, new OnLive owner Gary Lauder stated:
"Steve has created an extraordinary company that no one else could have created. He is a unique entrepreneur and deserves his legendary status in Silicon Valley as a creator of groundbreaking companies."
Lauder also expressed high hopes for the cloud gaming service, remarking that, "OnLive is now positioned to execut against longer-term projects with our breakthrough technology, products, and services." As for Perlman, no official word revealed where he might be going next, though an official statement noted he had a "myriad of other projects" to take care of.
A week ago, OnLive came under new ownership as tech investment company Lauder Partners rescued the service from an abrupt end. "Almost half" the original OnLive staff was offered positions at the reformed OnLive, and OnLive will continue to support all services, apps, and devices.
