Markku Ignatius named Acting Sulake CEO0
By - Posted 4th July, 2015 at 9:45 pm

 It’s a new year and a new start for Habbo and its parent company, Sulake. As all our regular readers would know, Mr. Paul LaFontaine had taken his coat and made a run for it. In other words, he quit his job as Sulake CEO. However, as any business minded person would know, you cannot run a company effectively without a head honcho. Thus, Sulake has appointed a gentleman by the name of Markku Ignatius to temporarily fill the post of Chief Executive Officer.

At present, there isn’t much information on how Mr. Ignatius will save the sinking ship (of Habbo). What is known is that in a recent press release posted on the Sulake website, he notes that it is essential to focus on the community. “To me, the story of Habbo has always been a story about the Community,” said Ignatius. “Our company’s strength and success derives from the strength and success of our Community. In the coming year we continue listening to our Community and learning from the Community. We will keep on both providing our users with the classic Habbo features so loved by our Community as well as continue developing new extensions to the Habbo experience, such as the recently launched Game Center and mobile application,” he said.

There is hope that Ignatius will swerve away from LaFontaine’s mediocre performance. He is from a much more humble background and has dedicated many years towards Sulake in various positions, most recently as Executive Vice President of Legal & Corporate Communications. He came to Sulake in July 2006, a time when Habbo was at its peak. Thus, many are hoping that he will revert the game back to such times. One thing is for sure, Ignatius will have an uphill battle in front of him. It looks unlikely that he would take the social media kind of approach that LaFontaine did, but rather focus on the basics of raising the community back to its former glory. How long he will remain on the job is anyone’s guess. You can click here to view a more detailed bio of him.
