Movarek had previously been at EA Canada in an executive role, after working at Relic Entertainment for six years from 1998. A statement from Rubin explains that it is Movarek’s “entrepreneurial experience”, “ability to drive dynamic teams” and his “experience building high-quality products” that lead to THQ deciding he is one of the people suited to helping the publisher steer a course through this rocky period.
“Ron is an exceptional development executive with unique perspective on the industry from both a creative and business point of view,” reads Rubin’s statement.
“His entrepreneurial experience as well as his ability to drive dynamic teams is a great fit for our strategic objectives. Additionally, Ron’s experience building high-quality products will help us continue to deliver great games and build upon our foundation to innovate digitally in the future.”
