Embracer has begun a major restructure and has already made some necessary changes to its upper management team.
The company has announced major changes to its operations in an effort to reduce its debt and transform itself from a “extremely cash-flow generative organisation.”
Sabre Interactive CEO Matthew Karch (shown above left) is leaving his post and joining the Embracer Group board of directors in order to take on the role of interim chief executive officer.
Andrey Iones, currently the COO at Sabre Interactive, will succeed Karch in his role.
The position of interim chief technology officer has been given to Phil Rogers (shown above). In his current role as CEO of Crystal Dynamics – Eidos, he will stay put.
As a result of these adjustments, the group’s senior management team now consists of six people:
- The CEO, Lars Wingefors
CFO and Deputy CEO Johan Ekström
Chief of Staff for Legal and Governance, Ian Gulam
Strategic Partnerships Chief Careen Yapp
Chief Operating Officer Interim Matthew Karch
