Malaysia’s own Streamline Media Group has been steadily accelerating its growth, beginning with the appointments of Stefan Baier as Executive Vice President of Publishing and Neil Haldar as Vice President of Publishing.
This is all part of their expansion plans to accelerate Streamline’s existing publishing efforts and deliver a host of new titles using cutting-edge video game technology and utilising the Web3 Metaverse. The company continues its expansion with the hiring of Gabriel Pessah.
Coming in as the Strategy and Corporate Development Executive, Pessah is responsible for strategic growth initiatives, refining corporate strategy, and formalizing Streamline's strategic-planning process.
"I met Streamline back in 2018 when I was at Sony PlayStation working on expanding development resources and have kept close contact with the leadership team," said Pessah in a recent statement.
"What is so impressive about Streamline is its unique ability to scale through its platform's tools and tech. That ability, coupled with best-in-class content and the demand for interactive digital assets and NFTs, makes this an exciting opportunity as we move forward."
Pessah most recently spearheaded Corporate Strategy and Business Development at ProbablyMonsters, a video game developer started by the former CEO of Bungie, where he led the largest series funding in entertainment software history.
Before ProbablyMonsters, Pessah was the Head of Strategy and Development at PlayStation Studios. During his tenure at PlayStation, he held multiple roles with experience working for the Chairman of PlayStation Studios and CEO of Americas in different capacities.
Pessah led the acquisition of Insomniac Games and played a key role in PlayStation's brand and technology IP expansion. Prior to getting into gaming, Pessah's work experience spans the strategy and financial service spectrum with a track record of success.
"Gabriel joining Streamline further solidifies our mission toward continuous growth and upskilling our teams by working with veteran games and tech industry experts," said Streamline Media Group CEO, Alexander Fernandez.
"We see an opportunity in the growing need for interactive digital assets across industries and will be working together to develop a scalable and sustainable corporate strategy to support this need through our creative and technical R&D studios."
Streamline is building a diverse portfolio showcasing its ever-expanding game development knowledge and expertise. They currently have five games in the greenlight process, including a triple-A console title, a casual game, and a real-time strategy game.
