Industry vet Leprince joins Nordisk Games as senior advisor

Nordisk Games has hired Audrey Leprince to be a senior advisor.

The Copenhagen-bsaed company has snapped up the industry vet, who will be working with its investment team to find potential partners, as well as supporting the companies that Nordisk already works with.

Leprince has worked in the games industry for some 23 years, which has included stints at Quantic Dream, Ubisoft and her current role at The Game Bakers. She also co-founded Women in Games France in 2017 and was its president until June of last year, and is a board member of French games trade body SNJV.

“Aside from the fact I’ll get to work with some of the best and brightest games studios in Europe, Nordisk Games’ core values were a big draw for me," Leprince said.

"The Nordisk Games team is working to improve diversity in games and lessening our collective impact on the environment, two things which are very important to me. Nordisk Games is also a unique investor as they put so much emphasis on building long-term relationships and bringing real strategic value to their partner studios.”

Nordisk Games CEO Mikkel Weider added: “We’re delighted that Audrey is joining the Nordisk Games family. Her experience speaks for itself. There aren’t many people that have worked so extensively across every facet of gaming. Even fewer have such a nuanced understanding of what it takes to succeed at every level of the games industry today."

In recent years, Nordisk has acquired 40 per cent of MercurySteam, a 30.7 per cent slice in Supermassive and a majority stake in Star Stable Entertainment.
