Vivendi Universal Games has announced that former Ubisoft Montreal head Martin Tremblay has joined as President, Worldwide Studios. In his new role, Tremblay will be responsible for setting the vision for the company's products, overseeing operations of internal studios, and managing external development relationships.

Tremblay will be based out of the company's Los Angeles headquarters. In his previous position as President and Chief Operating Officer of Ubisoft's Montreal studio, Tremblay helped build the studio from 350 to 1400 people. The executive left Ubisoft earlier this month, and has been replaced in that position by Yannis Mallat.

In his role as President, Worldwide Studios, Martin will report to VU Games' CEO Bruce Hack. Peter Della Penna will continue as Chief Operating Officer, Worldwide Studios, reporting to Tremblay. Interestingly, World Of Warcraft creator Blizzard Entertainment has been designated a stand-alone division reporting to VU Games' CEO, and is not part of Tremblay's product development mandate.

"We are delighted to have Martin join Vivendi Universal Games. He has the vision, enthusiasm and track record to elevate the company to a leadership position in the industry," said Bruce Hack, Chief Executive Officer, VU Games "We know that Martin will harness the immense creativity of VU Games' development executives and studios to create top tier mass market experiences for gamers around the globe."
