“Spil’s web to mobile strategy has really started to take off and I’m delighted to step into this role at such an exciting time for Spil,” said Geyer.

“Our web portal data is a unique asset to identify the games people are playing, enjoying and engaging with the most. My number one focus will be on making great web IPs a reality on mobile.”

Spil Games founder Peter Driessen said: “Timm knows the company inside and out and I’m thrilled he’s our new CEO.

“His experience and skills at making things happen, as well as ensuring the strategy of the business is executed to maximum effect, will bring our mobile momentum to a new level.”
