Rob Small moves to a new role of President

UK mobile games developer Miniclip has named Jurgen Post as its new CEO.

Miniclip launched in 2001 and in 2015 sold a majority stake in the business to games giant Tencent. Miniclip is best known for its browser-based and mobile games, including popular titles such as 8 Ball Pool, Golf Battle and Agari.io. The firm has achieved 2.6 billion downloads and 200 million monthly active users.

Post is the former European President of International Partnerships at Tencent. Prior to that, he was COO of Sega Europe, and has held positions at Sony Pictures, PlayStation and Sony Music.

He replaces Rob Small, who co-founded Miniclip. Small has taken a new role as President of Miniclip's Board and will provide 'support and guidance' to the management team.

"I am delighted to take the helm from Rob and looking forward to progressing Miniclip's purpose of 'unleashing the gamer in everyone' by working with Miniclip's hugely talented management team and employees around the world," Post said in a statement.
