Chartboost adds ex-Google, Booyah exec Chung-Man Tam as CPO
Mobile gaming cross-promotion and monetisation platform Chartboost is growing fast, and in all areas.

Over the past six months, the number of games using its services has doubled to 32,000, while monthly sessions are now at 12 billion.

The company, with offices in San Francisco and Amsterdam, is also seeing its headcount grow; from 30 at the start of 2013 to 90.

Leading the charge

One new recruit is Chung-Man Tam, who takes the new role of chief product officer.

Previously at AdMob/Google, location-based game developer Booyah, and photo app developer Qwilt, Tam will lead the company's efforts to build out its services.

Recently, it launched its Direct Deals Groups, while its real-time retailing Store product is currently in beta.

"We're in a period of incredible growth for both Chartboost and the gaming industry," said Chartboost CEO Maria Alegre.

"Chung-Man's product leadership experience in mobile and gaming companies combined with his passion for entrepreneurial ventures make him an ideal person to help lead our product efforts. I'm thrilled to have him on board."
