Top 100 Women in Games: Catharina Lavers Mallet

Lavers Mallet joined the games industry after graduating business school at MIT Sloan.

With previous work in enterprise software for the financial industry and strategy consulting, she had always had a side interest in theater production and working with creative teams generally.

Driven by this interest, Lavers Mallet then joined the newly EA-acquired Playfish asproduct manager.

She then moved across to mobile firm King, which at the time had fewer than 200 employees and was relatively unknown.

Now a mobile behemoth, the firm has over 1,000 staff and 350m monthly players.

Lavers Mallet started and built King's London Studio, including overseeing the development and launch of Farm Heroes Saga, which has been a strong contributor to that growth.

For Lavers Mallet, mobile is the future – she looks forward to seeing how the platform matures.
