Outfit7 Group has hired mobile expert Mika Kuusisto to fill the newly created role of chief revenue officer for both Outfit7 and Bee7.
In his new role, Kuusisto is charged with spearheading growth for Outfit7, creator of the "Talking Tom and Friends" franchise, and Bee7, the mobile games engagement, retention and re-engagement solution for developers launched by Outfit7.
The appointment comes as both Outfit7 and Bee7 enter new phases of development. Outfit7 is entering the content arena with its new animated series that debuted in April and Bee7 is on the verge of releasing new tools to help developers and publishers engage, retain and re-engage loyal players.
Kuusisto joins from the mobile game development platform, Unity. Prior to that, he spent 15 years working with mobile developers in the entertainment and app sectors.
“Mika joins at a very important juncture for Outfit7 and Bee7 as we embark on an exciting new phase of growth," says Samo Login, co-founder and chief executive officer, Outfit7 and Bee7, to whom Kuusisto will report. "His knowledge and understanding of the challenges that developers and publishers face to stay relevant in a rapidly evolving mobile market will be crucial to both businesses moving forward.”
