Twitter has hired Jeffrey Siminoff away from Apple, TechCrunch discovered on Tuesday. Twitter’s human resources chief Brian Schipper has since confirmed the hire on Twitter, saying that Siminoff will serve as the micro-blogging startup’s new Vice President of Diversity and Inclusion, replacing its departing director Janet Van Buysse who spent six years at the company.

According to Siminoff’s LinkedIn profile, he had led global diversity and inclusion efforts at Morgan Stanley for three years before joining Apple as its director of worldwide inclusion and diversity from September 2013 up until now.

Between 1992 and 1999 he served as a Senior Litigation Associate with litigation and advisory firm Riker Danzig Scherer Hyland & Perretti LLP.
