OnLive Replaces CEO Steve Perlman Following Sale

After a dramatic restructuring that led to many layoffs, one more OnLive employee is headed for the door: CEO Steve Perlman. The cloud-gaming service said that Gary Lauder, the lead investor in OnLive and the managing director of Lauder Partners, will become the new chairman; Charlie Jablonski, the former head of OnLive operations, will become OnLive’s COO and acting CEO. Perlman is departing to work on a “myriad of other projects,” the release said.
