What to do when you're coming off a year of huge losses
but still planning to reinvigorate the company
? Get yourself a new CEO! That's what Age of Conan's Funcom
did, announcing that Miguel Caron would be stepping into the position
at Funcom Games Canada. Caron has been working in Quebec with Lyrtech
, an audio and video processing company, as well as with IT firms like BCM International
and NoWire Telecom.
Given his background in reducing IT costs and raising market share in the realm of digital communications, we'd guess he's got his job cut out for him at Funcom. The company says it's aiming to expand operations in Montreal, far away from its humble roots in Norway, so we'll see if Caron can summon some Cimmerian strength and get things moving in the right direction over there.
