NetPort member company Tarsier Studios divides into two companies, original company will be in Malmö with Ola Holmdahl as CEO while Mattias start a new company in Karlshamn.Ola has a long track record in the game industry and brings a wide range of skills within game design, project management and corporate leadership. We believe Ola will be a great help in Tarsier’s continued development”, says Magnus Lindsten, chairman of the board of Tarsier Studios.
As CEO has Mattias been responsible for the development of the company and product at two separate offices. Mattias explains – “The office in Malmö is developing console games and our Karlshamn office provides game art outsourcing services. Due to my great ambitions, I don’t consider it feasible to keep both these studios running under me at the same time. I want to focus on a single studio, and given the fact that my family lives in Karlshamn, that is where I want to work.
