Challenger games development studio Peter & Sons has welcomed two high-profile hires as the company expands its management following significant investment from global entertainment brand SkillOnNet.
SkillOnNet’s senior vice president of corporate development, Maor Nutkevitch, will join as co-CEO of Peter & Sons. Nutkevitch, who will retain his position at SkillOnNet, will help lead the company into the crucial second phase of its lifecycle as it braces for growth and expansion into key regulated markets.
Meanwhile, experienced business development professional Christina Mirnaia will come on board to lead the account management department. Formerly Head of Partnerships and Business Development at Barbara Bang, Mirnaia has an impressive track record in the online gaming industry that includes prominent roles at Entain and Bwin Party.
Mirnaia will work to deepen crucial existing relationships with clients like Yggdrasil, Relax Gaming and Bragg Gaming, while driving new engagements through Peter & Sons’ new RGS platform.
“It’s always exciting to join a fast growing project and to be part of building something special and Peter & Sons has been like a breath of fresh air for the industry,” Mirnaia said. “The games are already famous for their creativity, art, and math, and that makes my job a whole lot easier. I also can’t wait to start working with the Peter & Sons team, which is amazingly dynamic, professional and creative, producing games that are already making waves in the industry.”
Peter & Sons works with world-class artists, mathematicians, and musicians to produce some of the most innovative, creative, and entertaining slots on the market. These include richly themed fantasy adventure titles like the recent Book of Books, Dragon Blox and Legend of Musashi.
Nutkevitch said the company’s deal with SkillOnNet means the future is bright for the young studio.
“Peter & Sons’ partnership with SkillOnNet allows it to target many new regulated markets, such as the UK, Spain, Germany, Ontario and more,” he said. “Having the ability to distribute the games in many regulated markets is a fantastic platform for growth which is not always available for relatively new studios. It’s really exciting to be part of a project at such a key moment in Peter & Sons’ trajectory.”
Yann Bautista, Peter & Sons founder and commercial director, said: “I’d officially like to welcome Maor and Christina to the team and say how thrilled we are to have you both on board. This is a major milestone in the short life of our studio as we continue our journey to becoming a major force in the content world.”
