Istanbul-based Dream Games has announced two key c-level appointments in conjunction with the opening of a new office in London. A descendant of the Peak Games lineage, Dream Games was founded just three years ago, and Dream Games has raised close to half a billion USD over the course of four funding rounds, and at last count, held a valuation of $2.75 billion.
"As a company, we have ambitious growth plans, and the opening of our London office marks the next phase in this journey," said Soner Aydemir, co-founder and CEO at Dream Games. "Our goal is to expand our international footprint and reach the best talent in the industry to become one of the best entertainment companies in the world. London is Europe's leading creative hub with a vibrant entertainment community, home to top-tier talent and some of our most important partners, so we're excited to have a new base here."
Putting some firepower behind a rather non-descript statement, Dream Games has announced the appointments of Anju Sethi who’s held executive positions at Activision Blizzard, King, and Google as Chief People Officer, and decades-long marketer Richard Hocking as Chief Marketing Officer, a first for the Turkish games maker.
“I am thrilled to join Dream Games as Chief People Officer on its incredible journey in the world of entertainment,” commented Anju. “At Dream Games, we know that our people are our biggest strength, and we are proud of the creative, purposeful, and trusting environment we created for them. We want to elevate and nurture our talent so they can reach their highest potential. I am inspired by this vision and feel privileged to be able to contribute to it.”
Dream Games’ most recent funding round, a $225 million Series C round was led by Series A round investor Index Ventures, with Makers Fund, IVP, BlackRock, Kora, and Balderton Capital also participating.
