Industry veteran John Hargelid has joined Stockholm-based Legend of Solgard developer Snowprint Studios as chief operating officer.
Hargelid formerly held leadership roles at Paradox Interactive, EA and DICE. At Snowprint, he will lead strategic growth of the company’s portfolio of turn-based games.
“John’s proven track record and deep experience in the games industry make him the ideal person to drive Snowprint’s growth strategy,” says Snowprint Studio CEO Alexander Ekvall. “He brings with him a breadth of experience that complements our goal of mastering our turn-based battles niche in the mobile landscape.”
“While I’ve been fortunate to work with amazing teams in my past, I was especially impressed by the balance that Snowprint has struck between strong partnerships, an outstanding creative team, and leaders who have had a hand in producing some of the most successful mobile games ever released,” says Hargelid. “I’m excited to help execute Snowprint’s vision of enabling further growth and innovation with the goal of creating a rich gaming experience for the everyday gamer to keep players entertained for years to come.”
