Apple Recruits Xbox Head

Apple today landed another key employee with word that Microsoft's senior Xbox strategy director Richard Teversham has left his company to join the Mac creator. Although Microsoft itself will only confirm that Teversham has left for a "new opportunity" beyond the company, MCV understands that he has quit his employer of 15 years to take up an education-related position at a European Apple office. Why he has made the switch or his specific role at Apple haven't been made public.

At present, Teversham's LinkedIn profile only refers to his recently-ended tenure at the company.

The departure follows a series of new hires from AMD's graphics brand ATI with the likely intent of producing custom mobile chip designs, though the former Microsoft executive's role isn't connected with these same activities. Apple is most likely to depend on Teversham to help revitalize its educational Mac sales, which have been hurt by the economic crisis and a resulting freeze on spending at schools.
