It has been quite a turnaround for SEGA in their ranks. One by one hiring after hiring has been occurring this year. And now another one can be added as Joseph Kim has been hired in SEGA’s Vice President of Product position:
“This position is instrumental in pulling all three of our wholly owned studios and two studio investments together to drive Sega’s success on mobile,” Sega Networks COO Chris Olson said. “Kim’s rich background in successfully bringing games to market along with his experience in consulting and analytics makes him the best candidate for the job, and we look forward to seeing him work his magic.”
Prior to joining Sega, Kim was a studio lead at FunPlus, and briefly served as VP of product management at Gaia Interactive. He also served as CEO at development studio Playviews, and was a partner at consulting and seed financing firm Net Service Ventures for five years.
“In mobile gaming, the best is yet to come,” Kim said. “I look forward to working with the teams at Sega to help deliver awesome game experiences to existing and future Sega customers.”
It sounds like SEGA is really intent on their successful mobile campaign. You can read an entire interview with Joseph Kim here.
