One of the many things we do at e27 is to profile the movement of key people in the community to find out how this might affect the industry. A few weeks back, we received news that Erwan Mace, Google’s Developers Relations for Southeast Asia, has left his role.

According to Erwan, he is currently spending more time on some of his own apps. His longer term plans may involve some product ideas he has in mind.

Erwan has been with Google since November last year, taking charge of the developer relations in Southeast Asia. Prior to joining Google, Erwan was working on his own mobile app company, Bitsmedia, which developed more than 10 iPhone applications for enterprise clients such as Vivendi, Universal Music and Ogilvy.

Erwan’s earlier experiences has seen him hold key roles in Europe and Asia. Erwan has held senior technical leadership positions in organisations such as Alcatel, Akamai and Vivendi. He has also been involved in internet startups such as Spray and Soundbuzz.

An active member of the tech community, Erwan has talked about  best practices and advices for mobile app development and marketing at a earlier Developer Garage, together with e27’s director, Mohan Belani.

The team at e27 wishes Erwan all the best and looking forward to more updates from him. Erwan is not the first Google Singapore employee to leave for startup-land. Earlier in May, we also covered the departure of Google Southeast Asia’s senior conversion specialist, Vinoaj Vijeyakumaar. Vinoaj joined Dropmyemail as their Head of Product Development.
