Miniclip appoints Saad Choudri as CEO

Mobile developer Miniclip has announced that Chief Strategy Officer Saad Choudri will take on the role of the company’s CEO following the departure of Jurgen Post.

Choudri joined Miniclip in 2011 and has held several roles during his 10 years in the firm, including VP of business affairs, chief commercial officer and most recently chief strategy officer.

Post, which moved into the role of CEO in January 2020 from the company’s majority stakeholder Tencent, is resigning due to family reasons.

“Miniclip has a long history of being an industry leader, first for browser, before innovation in mobile,” said Choudri. “Its strong vision and focus on building quality games that reach billions of people to free up the gamer in everyone has always helped define the business and enabled us to find ways to innovate in a crowded and unpredictable marketplace. . ”

“In my new role as CEO, I aim to continue the great work of the management team and double the Miniclip vision, which has seen us triple our revenue over the last three years. I will continue to be strongly involved in the strategic direction of the company, which supports M&A to bring further education to our family and launch more games next year than ever before, as well as ensure that our culture remains strong and supportive. ”

Miniclip founder and president Rob Small added: “Saad has made a huge contribution to Miniclip’s success over the last decade and I look forward to supporting him as Miniclip’s next CEO.”

The company also acquired a trio of studios earlier this year; UK-based SuperSonic Software, Romanian developer Green Horse Games and Online Soccer Manager maker Gamebasics.
