Simon Spalding has been appointed the Executive Chair of Steamforged Games board. He previously held senior roles at Hasbro, where he worked on brands including Trivial Pursuit, and Fremantle Media, where he worked in production. His appointment follows that of Ian Livingstone, the co-founder of Games Workshop. Livingstone was appointed as a non-executive director earlier in the year.
“I’m incredibly pleased to be joining Steamforged at such an exciting time in the company’s growth,” Spalding said. In April, Foresight Group LLP made a £5 million investment to the company to support new product development.
Spalding said the company would focus strengthening existing partnerships, expanding distribution, and developing original IPs.
