Antti Villanen to take the role of Chief Strategy Officer and to join the Management Board.

Nitro Games announces that co-founder Antti Villanen takes the role of Chief Strategy Officer (CSO). Antti is also a member of the Board of Directors, elected on 26 April 2019. Antti has previously been the Executive Chairman of the company, and participated actively in the company operations since its founding in 2007, when Antti was the Chief Executive Officer.

In his new role as Chief Strategy Officer, Antti will lead the corporate development in Nitro Games. This function includes strategic options, business development, key partnerships as well as esports. Antti will also join the Management Board of the company. This new role is a natural extension to his role so far, since moving forward the company is looking for new business expansion areas, including non-organic growth, and therefore more expertise in this field is needed.
