Jason Holtman spent the last eight years helping Valve’s Steam business evolve into the go-to business for online PC gamers. Now he’s about to do the same thing for Microsoft’s Windows store.

Holtman has joined up with the company to help it focus on PC gaming and entertainment strategy. Though he didn’t go too far into detail about the position, he did confirm he joined the company.

“Yes, I have joined Microsoft where I will be focusing on making Windows a great platform for gaming and interactive entertainment,” he said. “I think there is a lot of opportunity for Microsoft to deliver the games and entertainment customers want and to work with developers to make that happen, so I’m excited to be here.”

We’ll see how well Jason does over the next few months. We wish him the best of luck.
