London, UK. 28th Sept 2005 -- Climax is delighted to confirm the appointment of industry veteran Jonas Eneroth as President of its London based studio. With over 10 years experience managing product development and origination, he assumes responsibility for the day-to-day running of the studio, with added focus on the mobile and handheld sector.
"Jonas's experience working on massive gaming projects like Thief and Hitman will prove invaluable, especially at a time when the London studio is expanding to work on several major titles", commented Karl Jeffrey, CEO of Climax. "He's the ideal man for the job and we know his input will help the London studio to achieve even higher standards of excellence."
Aside from the obvious benefits his experience and expertise will bring to the company, Jonas's appointment is significant for highlighting Climax's ability to attract the biggest names in the industry. Karl Jeffrey explained: "Climax has come so far over the last few years that we're able to attract the industry's most highly respected professionals, like Jonas. With people of his calibre joining, the company can only go from strength to strength."
Having previously held senior positions at Bungie and Eidos, Jonas has intimate knowledge of the video game industry from within both development and publishing. As a co-founder of Wired Realms, a studio focused on MMO and mobile game technologies, he's also a proven visionary with a head for business. But for all his experience, Jonas views his new role at Climax as the most exciting challenge he's faced yet: "I've long-admired Climax, both for the games it develops and the way that it works, so I jumped at the chance to join. The company's commitment to producing cutting-edge games using state-of-the-art technology is particularly appealing to me, and I'm looking forward to playing my part in keeping the company's success going."
