As part of Bug-Tracker’s continuing expansion into Asia and Europe the quality assurance and localisation service provider has hired Wolfgang Klingel as general sales manager for Europe.
Klingel’s new position sees him assume responsibility for expanding the company’s operations in the European games market. The industry veteran, who has 15 years in the sector behind him, is also charged with strengthening Bug-Traker’s exposure to the publishers and developers in the continent. Finally, working with the firm’s other operations in America and Asia, Klingel is tasked with bolstering communication throughout the group on an international scale.
Having previously taken Vivendi Games Germany from start-up to the second-largest publisher in the country’s games market in a general manager role, Klingel later assumed a director of development position at Vivendi Games Coktel Studio. More recently he worked as vice-president of Enzyme Testing Labs in Europe, where Klingel is credited with significantly developing the QA and localisation company.
"Wolfgang will greatly help reinforce and grow our presence in the market we started out in 10 years ago” stated Antoine Carre, founder and CEO. “He will bring together and integrate key components of Bug-Tracker’s worldwide studios, in order to shape, lead and create new market opportunities. Adding an accomplished European video game business veteran such as Wolfgang to our team demonstrates our commitment to continuously fortify our leadership role in the QA and localization industry.”
