Robot Teddy, Thunderful Games' self-publishing support agency, has announced additions to its executive team.

Joining the company are Amanda Farough, Mike Futter, Alessandro Bovenzi, Hans van Brakel, and Naaila Mohammed.

Games industry veterans Farough and Futter are now co-directors of strategic partnerships. The pair most recently worked at Strange Scaffold as producers and have been running their own business development consultancy, F-Squared, since 2020.

Before being named Robot Teddy's director of business development, Bonvenzi last served as business development manager at All in Games.

Crytek alum Brakel will now serve as Robot Teddy's director of sales and monetization. Meanwhile, Mohammed becomes the agency's new director of business operations. Her work history includes a six-year stint as lead development manager at Dovetail Games.

Additionally, Thunderful's chief operating officer Kathrin Strangfeld will serve as Robot Teddy's managing director.

"The new leadership team will bring the support and services we are able to provide to our partners to new heights, as we continue to work with them on creating and achieving their goals, as well as adding sensational new projects like Stalker 2 and Vampire Survivors to our portfolio," said Strangfeld.
