Fingersoft’s CEO Mr. Jaakko Kylmäoja states that the new appointments respond especially to the company’s development needs.

In the Game Development Technical Director role, Teemu will solve these issues with his solid experience. We also wanted to get someone with a valuable outside perspective and experience on Fingersoft’s board, and Mika brings, among other things, good financial expertise,” says Kylmäoja.
