Markus Windelen, a games industry professional with more than 20 years of experience in executive leadership roles, has joined Nordisk Games as partner and director of operations.
“We are very excited to get Markus on board. He has a lot of experience, is well connected in the industry, and is a very skilled manager,” says Nordisk Games managing director Mikkel Weider. “He is also just one of those people, that you really want to work with on a daily basis, so we are very happy he said yes.”
“I’m very happy to join the team. Nordisk Games is now reaching beyond the Nordic countries into Europe when helping game studios creating game IP with global appeal,” says Markus Windelen. “Their latest investment in MercurySteam just before Christmas 2020 is a great demonstration of this new approach. I’m very much looking forward to supporting the team in this new endeavor.”
Copenhagen-based Nordisk Games is owned by entertainment company Nordisk Film, which is a part of Egmont, a leading Nordic media group.
