Oculus has announced that former Valve chief of business development, Jason Holtman, has joined the company.

“A driving force behind Steam since its earliest days, Jason brings incredible experience building entertainment platforms for both users and developers,” reads a post from Oculus, in part. “At Valve, Jason was a pioneer in the digital distribution revolution that’s taken place over the last decade.”

“Jason will be spearheading the business development and partnership side of the Oculus platform working closely with Marshall, head of platform engineering, and David, head of worldwide publishing, with a focus on building the world’s best developer and player VR ecosystem. We’re thrilled to welcome him to the team.”

Holtman joined Valve in 2005, where he worked with developers to bring games to Steam as director of business. He departed the company in 2013, and joined Microsoft to work on the Windows operating system. Holtman left Microsoft in February 2014, just six months later.
