In his role as managing director and founder of Game Advisor, Lampinen offers strategic advice and market intelligence to corporate leaders and investors within the global games industry.

Douglas Hare, co-founder and CEO of Outplay Entertainment said, “We’re delighted to welcome Stefan to the board at Outplay. Stefan has built an incredible reputation in the industry, not to mention an unmatched network, bringing with him knowledge and expertise that will significantly strengthen Outplay’s board."

Lampinen said, “Outplay has enjoyed a hugely successful 10 years, having built a strong foundation of talent and capability which have enabled them to deliver multiple critically acclaimed original IP, as well as hugely successful games based on Angry Birds and Gordon Ramsay.

I’m excited to join them at the start of this next chapter and look forward to sharing my experience at board level, with our collective ambition to expand and scale the business.”
