Sept. 9, 2008 - PRLog -- After Krakow (Poland), the London office is the second new representation outside the company´s Head Office in Austria.

"For XENDEX, the existence of a local presence in the UK is of strategic importance", says Michael Haberl, CEO of XENDEX. "A significant number of our key publishing and licensing partners are based in London. Working from within the country will enable us to offer our partners an even better, faster and more direct service than before. After the recent investment of EUR 2.3 million by Venture Capitalist PONTIS, the UK office is the next logic step in our ambitious expansion strategy."

Achim Kürten head of London office
XENDEX´s London office will be headed by Achim Kürten, who joined XENDEX in April this year as VP International Sales & Marketing. This position has been created to support the company´s global expansion activities. As central point of contact for XENDEX`s distribution, marketing and licensing partners, Achim Kürten will work in the company´s London office.

Achim Kürten looks back on more than 10 years in the interactive software industry. As Marketing Director for THQ Germany, he played an active role in the Publisher´s growth and success in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Leaving the videogames publisher in 2004, he joined mobile games company Mobilescope and - after the acquisition by Bordeaux based In-Fusio - he held the position of Sales & Marketing Director EMEA.

In his role as VP International Sales & Marketing for XENDEX, Achim Kürten will be responsible for the co-ordination of the Developer´s global publishing activities. In addition to fostering and establishing existing business contacts, he will actively pursue the extension of the company´s current partner network. The overall objective is to support XENDEX's strive to consolidate it's current position as a globally leading mobile games developer.

Michael Haberl, CEO of XENDEX: "After our first funding round in June this year and the exciting opportunities resulting from it, we are extremely pleased to have Achim on board. With his wealth of experience in the games industry, he is a tremendous asset in our company and I look forward to working closely together with him to achieve our ambitious growth targets in the months and years to come."
