New CTO for Runescape developer

Jagex appoints Remo Gettini

Jagex has a new chief technology officer in Remo Gettini, who has taken over the responsibility from CEO Mark Gerhard.

It's safe to say that the future of Jagex looks very exciting indeed."

Before joining Jagex in March Gettini was CTO at Time Out, a position he held for 9 months. He also spent over 6 years with Electronic Arts, as mobile senior technical director and then interactive senior technical director.
