Funcom has announced that it has appointed a CEO for Funcom Games Canada Inc, its newly established Montreal-based wing.
Miguel Caron brings with him 15 years of organisational leadership experience, and will take on “several strategic initiatives” in the MMO sector of Funcom, starting with recruitment for the new Montreal studio.
“We are thrilled to have Miguel join us at Funcom,” says Funcom CEO Trond Arne Aas. “Our Montreal based Company is central to a string of new business initiatives in Funcom, both in the high-end MMO space and in the casual MMO space. Mr. Caron will be instrumental in developing and expanding those initiatives. We have already found Quebec and Montreal to be an excellent location for business and we look forward to further expand our operations here under the leadership for Miguel.”
The Montreal studio is likely to contribute content to Funcom’s highly anticipated upcoming MMO,, as well as other MMO projects such as Age of Conan’s expansion, .
