Product GM Jeff Tseng steps up to CrowdStar CEO role
Social mobile publisher CrowdStar has rejigged its executive line up.

Co-founder and investor Peter Relan has stepped down from the role of CEO, returning to his previous position of executive chairman.

In his place comes general manager of products and company co-founder Jeff Tseng.

Tseng previously headed Sega-bought console development start up Secret Level. He's been with CrowdStar four years; leading the production of multiple games, and the company's user acquisition efforts and business intelligence platform.

On the up

"I'm excited to lead CrowdStar into the next phase of growth on both domestic and global mobile platforms," he said.

"I have an excellent management team and very supportive investors. We will be growing aggressively yet strategically in terms of capital raising and partnering."

CrowdStar raised $11.5 million in May 2012 to switch from Facebook social games to iOS and Android.

It's since expanded its global footprint with deals in Korea and China with Gamevil and Tencent respectively, and more generally with GREE.
