Established, experience mobile gaming studio executive Jami Laes has been hired on as Rovio’s new executive vice president of games, the company announced.

“Thinking back, this was a natural next step in my career. I have always been a huge fan of Angry Birds and it has been great to see the phenomenal success that Rovio has already achieved,” said Laes. “We’ve only seen a fraction of what can be achieved with great brands like Angry Birds and Bad Piggies and I wanted to be a part of building that story.”

Laes replaces Petri Järvilehto, who co-founded Remedy Entertainment then left to join Rovio in February 2011.

“[Laes’] expertise consists of a unique combination of creative process leadership and mobile and social platform knowledge which adds great value to our team,” said Rovio CEO Mikael Hed.
