Former Namco VP Comte hops over to French publisher Ankama

Olivier Comte has been VP of sales at Atari and senior VP at Namco Bandai Europe, and now he is the chief operating officer at Ankama, independent publisher/developer of MMOs Wakfu and Dofus, along with a myriad of other low-ish profile games, comparatively speaking.

The purpose of bringing in Comte is to have him actually run the studio to free up co-founders Anthony Roux and Camille Chafer to focus more on their efforts in the creative side of the business.

"Ankama is a remarkable success story, bringing together brilliant creativity and technical expertise to become pioneers in transmedia properties that capture hearts around the world," said Comte in a statement (via GamesIndustry). "I'm very proud to be joining the team and extremely excited about helping to realise the enormous worldwide potential of their existing and future creations."
