Rovio Entertainment, the Finnish start-up that shot to fame with computer game Angry Birds, is now looking to follow up on that success.
But the company’s new chief executive, Kati Levoranta, told Handelsblatt that won’t be easy. The entertainment industry has changed significantly and people rarely pay for video games any longer, she said.
Ms. Levoranta took the helm at the company early this year after working for Rovio’s legal department as general counsel. Working with such a creative company has been significantly different from her experience at her former employer Nokia Siemens Network, she said.
Looking toward the future, Ms. Levoranta said Rovio has a promising outlook in all of three of its divisions: gaming, technology and media.
