Rik, who invited Nick Wheelwright to join the team said,“I’m genuinely thrilled to have Nick on board as CEO. His appointment has already brought a fresh energy to the company and I’m looking forward to building the company alongside him.”
Nick Wheelwright added,“This is going to be a good year for Monumental. The forthcoming MotoGP title looks and plays fantastically, and has already been described in the press as‘Gran Turismo on two wheels’– a great compliment, and one that I feel is deserved. The dedication of the staff throughout the company is formidable.”
“We have some exciting times ahead building on the potential of our PRIME engine, and I look forward to making a real contribution to the success of the company. Monumental is in an extremely good position with its browser-based technology, which is gathering widespread acclaim from a number of different partners.”
