“As we enter the next stage of the Company’s evolution, with the launch of our Mobilize effort and new solutions for our clients, we are confident that Mr. Bakre will play a pivotal role in strengthening the foundation that the team have built since launching in 2009," said group chairman Reinout te Brake.

Bakre added: "As the games development and marketing processes get more complicated, we are continuing to roll-out new solutions that empower developers to self-publish their games.

"I’m energized to take on the challenges of an ever-changing industry and am looking forward to executing on our core vision."
