During the past six months, Zordix has doubled its workforce. And through recent acquisitions, it has started a journey as a Group with international reach. Expanding the board with a game industry legend such as Stefan Lampinen and a strategic business developer with a large investor network such as David Wallsten is natural at this stage.
