Heading up gPartners program

Ex-IUGO biz dev director Sarah Thomson joins Glu Mobile
With Glu Mobile resurgence in its new role as a 3D social mobile publisher, and no doubt boosted by Zynga's planned IPO, it's looking to aggressively build out its content pipeline.

Part of that push is its gPartners scheme, which has already seen thirdparties such as Barking Lizards, Escalation, Flying Wisdom, Hitpoint, and Machine Works sign up to get their games released by Glu.

Bossing it

And now it's been confirmed that Sarah Thomson, who previously headed up business development at Canadian studio IUGO, has been hired as director of business development for gPartners.

Currently based in Vancouver, Thomson says on her blog that she'll be relocating to Glu's San Francisco office in the fall.
