Longterm mobile industry veteran Jeferson Valadares has joined Bandai Namco Games America as its GM/VP of product development.
Previously GM of EA Mobile studio in San Francisco, Valadares has also worked at BioWare, Playfish, Flurry, and Digital Chocolate.
"My passion is to delight through play. I'm inspired by BANDAI NAMCO's rich history and long term dedication to creating compelling and fulfilling gameplay experiences," Valadares commented.
"In this day and age, people have several ways to pass their time, and we appreciate the fact that we need to deliver amazing experiences consistently to earn their time (and wallet).
"To get there, we need great teams to create and service the right games and that is what I plan on spending all my waking hours."
