Q: What does your role at the company entail?

A: As the CEO, I oversee the strategic direction, operations, and overall management of the agency.

Q: What are your thoughts on the way the industry has grown in the last 12 months?

A: Branding has become more and more important for mobile publishers. Mobile games, like their PC and console brethren, have graduated from being merely games to important entertainment experiences that are deeply engaging and beloved. Due to the competitiveness of performance marketing and the need to differentiate, it has been interesting to see mobile marketers branch out into other forms of media and promotion like out-of-home, television, and social media.

Q: Which part of Pocket Gamer Connects Helsinki are you most looking forward to and why?

A: The lectures. It's always fascinating to hear from people across every sector in the industry.
