As we grow as a company, we’ve been steadily building and strengthening not just our engineering teams and our game studios, but also our corporate functions and our leadership team. These steps are all crucial to ensuring that we can fulfil our mission to build and offer a uniquely innovative, end-to-end resource for developers looking to make any kind of multiplayer game.
We’re very happy to announce the appointment of Dan Odell as our Chief Financial Officer. Dan will be responsible for managing Improbable's Finance, Strategy and Operations teams, manage the financial affairs of the company, and identify and plan for the optimal path for Improbable's ongoing growth.
Dan joined Improbable last month after a 15-year career at Disney, where he held various finance and strategy roles including VP, Global Product Management for Disney Parks, Experiences and Products, CFO of Maker Studios, CFO of Disney Mobile and Social Games, and Director of Global Financial Planning and Analysis for Disney’s Consumer Products Segment. Before joining Disney, Dan held finance roles at multiple startups. Dan began his career in public accounting, including roles at Deloitte focused on M&A transaction support and audit.
It’s great to see our leadership team strengthened by the experience of executives with proven records at some of the best-known companies in the worlds of technology and digital entertainment. Dan will be working alongside our most recent previous executive hire, CTO Lincoln Wallen, who served as CTO at Dreamworks Animation and EA Mobile.
Welcome to the team, Dan!
