Philly-based Google Cloud exec Moyer settles AWS non-compete suit, Geekwire reported
GeekWire reported that Amazon Web Services has settled its lawsuit against Phillip Moyer, a former Microsoft and Safeguard Scientifics exec who jumped from AWS to Google Cloud last year. Terms of the settlement were not disclosed.
Moyer, who remains Philly-based according his LinkedIn Profile, in July jumped from being AWS’ sales chief for financial services to a similar role with Google Cloud, except for healthcare and life sciences. AWS sued him for allegedly violating the non-compete clause of his contract.
Last October, a federal judge placed limitations on Moyer’s role with Google Cloud until the case was resolved.
Washington state last year passed legislation that narrowed the effective scope of non-compete clauses.
