Smart TV platform PlayJam has just signed up Criterion Software's Adam Billyard as its new chief technical officer.

Criterion, which Billyard co-founded, is best known for the Burnout racing franchise and creating RenderWare.

"Adam joins a long list of industry veterans supporting PlayJam's absolute belief that Smart TV will emerge as one of the most important games platforms over the coming years," said CEO Jasper Smith.

"His extensive experience will help ensure PlayJam maintains its already significant momentum and position as the dominant games service in this space".

It follows PlayJam's announcement in April that it had appointed ex-BBC TV business development head Charles Tigges as CCO.
