Ex-EA and Outspark executive Owen Mahoney takes role

Free-to-play online publisher Nexon has named Owen Mahoney as its new chief financial officer, effective immediately.

Mahoney moves into the role from his most recent position as the chief executive officer of online publisher Outspark, before which he spent nine years as senior vice-president of corporate and business development at Electronic Arts.

"Nexon is clearly on the cutting edge of the online gaming business and is changing the way games are being played," said the Berkeley-educated Mahoney.
