Ben Cousins Appointed Head of Studio Operations for FunPlus' European Studios


FunPlus, a leading independent mobile game developer and publisher, announced today that Ben Cousins has been appointed Head of Studio Operations, supervising projects in development at FunPlus' studios in Moscow and Stockholm. Based in Stockholm, and in close collaboration with studio leadership in both locations, Cousins will help to optimize the studios' working environment and align all studio activities to contribute to successful product development and continued company growth.

A game industry thought leader, Cousins created Battlefield Heroes, one of the western world's first free-to-play games. A former Executive Producer of the Battlefield franchise at DICE, he has also led the development of other innovative games services on PC, console and mobile at DeNA, Sony Computer Entertainment and others. In recent years he has been working as an independent consultant for leading games-as-a-service companies.

"FunPlus continues to attract top-notch talent, and Ben brings a wealth of expertise that will contribute to the creative excellence of our teams," said Chris Petrovic, Chief Business Officer of FunPlus. "As a pioneer in the free-to-play space, and with extensive experience working with numerous developers, I am confident that FunPlus' ambitious projects will flourish under his supervision."

FunPlus, which is headquartered in Switzerland, has grown its European presence steadily over the past three years, with the opening of studios in Stockholm and Moscow, as well as its publishing office in Barcelona.
