Vesa Raudasoja steps up as chairman; Kongregate CEO Emily Greer takes over as vice-chair

The International Game Developers Association (IGDA) has announced the appointment of a new chair and vice-chair to its board of directors.

Game consultant, developer, and former vice-chair Vesa Raudasoja will step into the role of board chairman. Former chairman David Seltzer will remain on the board as chair emeritus.

The role of vice-chair will be filled by Emily Greer, Kongregate co-founder and CEO.

"Although we are sad to see David go, we are confident the IGDA's new leadership is going to accomplish great things," said IGDA executive director Jen MacLean. "Vesa's ongoing dedication to the international gaming community and Emily's track record as the founder and CEO of a successful gaming company are a potent combination for furthering the IGDA's goals of helping developers all over the world develop successful careers."
