Stickmen Media is super excited to announce that Sam Ragnarsson is taking on the position of CEO, starting (very appropriately) on Star Wars Day, May the 4th. Sam brings with him energy, experience, a passion for games and software, a cracking sense of humour, and best of all, the ability to swear in Icelandic.
The timing couldn’t be better after a year of evolution and milestones. Over the last year Stickmen Media has completed many diverse projects, not least of which are; the award winning mobile Virtual Reality game (http://www.itm.co.nz/gofish), a mobile App and website for doctors to track their professional development and an augmented reality App for the oil and gas industry. Stickmen Media’s own game, “After The Light”, a scary-beautiful first-person zombie shooter set in caverns and caves, for PC, VR, PlayStation and PlayStation VR, is also well into development.
It’s been amazing seeing so much coming together at Stickmen Media, while parts of it have been challenging. The core founders of Stickmen Media, Brook and Margaret, have reached a point where they felt that the company is now at a juncture to shake things up and take it, along with it’s awesome team, to the next level. With a new CEO, Brook can concentrate on his core skills as a CTO, and indulge in his passion for all things software, sciency and games. Of course he will still be very much a part of daily interactions with customers. Margaret will continue in her role as COO, but with additional focus on marketing and sales.
We also moved into our new big office in Epic, where we have space for our VR set-up, and probably a tennis court as well.
To add to the momentum, we’re about to start development on a couple of large projects, both of which are unique and exciting to say the least. As well as that we have a healthy pipeline of smaller projects coming online that we’re looking forward to starting.
In the next few weeks Sam will be putting out a post that will reveal some of the new focus and direction for Stickmen. In the meantime we hope you’ll join us in welcoming Sam to Stickmen Media!
