Saad Choudri appointed CEO of Miniclip | Pocket Gamer.biz

Miniclip announced that its Chief Strategy Officer Saad Choudri has been appointed CEO.

He has been with the company since 2011 and has taken over from Jürgen Post.

Choudri has a background at Sega, in addition to his decades of experience at Miniclip, and has worked in positions ranging from VP of Business Affairs to Chief Commercial Officer and Chief Strategy Officer.

Within Miniclip, Choudri has spearheaded M&A plans and welcomed new studios like Ilyon (Bubble Shooter), Gamebasics (OSM Online Soccer Manager), Eight Pixels Square (the studio behind Sniper Strike) and Green Horse Games (Football Rivals).

“Saad has made a tremendous contribution to Miniclip’s success over the past decade and I look forward to joining him as Miniclip’s next CEO,” said Rob Small, President of Miniclip.

Strategic direction

“Miniclip has long been an industry leader, first in the browser space before innovating in the mobile space,” said Saad Choudri.

“In my new role as CEO, I want to continue the great work of the executive team and double the vision of Miniclip, which has tripled our sales over the past three years. I will continue to be heavily involved in the company’s strategic direction, support M&A to add more studios to our family and bring more games to market than ever before over the next year, and to ensure our culture remains strong and supportive. “

The move was welcomed by both Miniclip’s senior management and its majority investor Tencent.

After Jürgen Post stepped down for family reasons earlier this year, Rob Small temporarily stepped down into the role of CEO to ensure strong leadership was maintained during the transition.

“I would like to take this opportunity to express my personal gratitude to Jürgen for everything that he has contributed to Miniclip during his tenure. We have deep sympathy for his situation and wholeheartedly support Jürgen’s decision to concentrate on his family for the foreseeable future, ”commented Rob Small.
