Nitish Mittersain, Founder and Joint Managing Director, Nazara Technologies, will be taking over the reins from Manish Agarwal as the Chief Executive Officer of the gaming and sports media platform.
Agarwal has already submitted his resignation, owing to his desire to pursue an entrepreneurial journey and he will no longer hold the position of CEO, effective December 1, 2022.
However, he will continue his association with the company as a Nazara nominee on its board of material subsidiaries.
Mittersain has been associated with the mobile entertainment platform for nearly 20 years now.
Mittersain said, “Manish and I have worked closely together over the last seven years to build a strong foundation on which Nazara will continue to grow rapidly in the years to come. I wish him all the best in his future endeavors.”
Nazara Technologies has also appointed Sudhir Kamath as its new Chief Operating Officer. Kamath has over 20 years of experience in strategy consulting, private equity investing, operations and entrepreneurship.
Prior to this, Kamath was the CEO and Founder of Sparskills Technologies where he developed and scaled the 9stacks gaming brand.
He started his career at strategy consulting firm McKinsey & Co, where he worked in their India, Dubai and London offices.
Speaking on Kamath’s appointment, Mittersain said, “We are delighted that Sudhir has joined us at Nazara as our COO. Sudhir is an established business leader who has built high performance teams across ventures and brings a wide network of relationships in the gaming world.”
“With his deep operating expertise and entrepreneurial mindset, we are confident that he will contribute immensely in propelling Nazara to new heights. I welcome him to the Nazara family,” he added.
