Google Eyeing Hollwood?

Google has hired a former Pixar and Disney executive. Could it be that Google has its sights set on the big bright lights of Hollywood entertainment?

Google announced that it has brought on Ann Mather to its Board of Directors at Google. Ms. Mather was Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer for Pixar. At Pixar she was responsible for finance, administration, business affairs, investor relations and HR. She was Pixar’s prime contact with Disney on distribution issues as part of the Disney/Pixar co-production agreement, served as the Company Secretary, and helped supervise construction of a new campus.
