Dev hires PokerStars’ Daniel Kashti and former Team17 PR Sam Forrest

Social games firm KamaGames opens London office

KamaGames has announced the opening of a new UK office in central London.

The firm’s first UK branch is part on ongoing global expansion as it works on growing its reach and portfolio of social games. KamaGames is best known for Pokerist and Roulettist, and publishes games to Xbox Live, PSN and Steam.

The opening of the London office also coincides with two key hires. Daniel Kashti joined in February from PokerStars, where he was head of mobile. He takes on the role of chief marketing officer.

Meanwhile, Sam Forrest has been hired as director of global PR. He has previously held similar roles at Team17, Jagex and THQ.

“It’s a very exciting time for KamaGames right now,” says Kashti. “We are seeing significant and very rapid growth across the social gaming sector, in particular across the social casino space on mobile and so we felt it was the right time to really focus on growing the player-base across our portfolio of games with the setting up of a UK service company as well as making some key appointments.”
