Board changes took place

The Q1 2022 financial report published by the company last month stated that there would be changes in the board of directors. Noting that Nexters made these changes to increase sustainability, the company announced that Ivan Tavrin would resign from the board of directors and chairman of the board.

The board changes announced by Nexters in its latest report were as follows:

  • Marie Holive, Olga Loskutova, and Tal Shoham were elected as the new Independent Directors at the general meeting.
  • Natasha Braginsky Mounier has been named Chairperson of the Board by the newly composed Board of Directors.

Andrey Fadeev, Co-Founder and CEO of Nexters, states the following in the financial report:

“We are proud of our performance in the second quarter of 2022. Despite an extremely unfavorable macro and geopolitical environment, challenges in user acquisition and player behavior, as well as both organizational and corporate changes, Nexters demonstrated the sustainability of its business and managed to complete the quarter with record-high net income.

Looking ahead to the second half of the year, we will continue to focus on operational execution and key product roadmap development, allowing us to navigate the changing environment.”

With these changes, all Nexters committees are made up of independent directors only. You can access the full report by clicking here.
