Rovio brings on Jami Laes as Executive VP of Games

Rovio brings on Jami Laes as Executive VP of Games

| Business, Financial & Legal News | Posted: Apr 19, 2013 1:31 am

Rovio has brought on a new person to oversee the development of new games. Jami Laes is Rovio's new executive vice president of games and will oversee the Finnish gaming studio's new game development. Laes is no newcomer to the world of games as he has previously worked at EA and Digital Chocolate.

Rovio needs to expand beyond its hit series, Angry Birds, in order to continue as a gaming studio. Laes will play an important roll as the gaming studio works to develop other hit games. After all, there's only so long Angry Birds can be tweaked before people get bored of the game and move to something new.

 

Thinking back, this was a natural next step in my career. I have always been a huge fan of Angry Birds, and it has been great to see the phenomenal success that Rovio has already achieved. Even so, we've only seen a fraction of what can be achieved with great brands like Angry Birds and Bad Piggies, and I wanted to be a part of building that story.
