Dominic Wheatley steps down as Catalis CEO

The CEO of Catalis Group, Dominic Wheatley (pictured), is leaving his role.

In a post on its website, the company announced that he would be stepping into a non-executive director position. No-one is replacing Wheatley in the top job; Catalis' two divisions – Curve Games and Testronics – will be managed by their respective CEOS, John Clark and Mike Betti.

"Catalis historically was made up of two different businesses, and that is what I inherited," Wheatley said.

"Now, with Curve building its own set of studios such as Runner Duck and Iron Oak, and Testronic now supplemented by Whyttest, Secret 6 and Giant in the film and TV division, it’s time to let each head to the next stage. The Catalis Board will help steer both companies and I look forward to playing my part."

Catalis chair Peter Opperman added: "Dominic’s development of the management teams now allows him to move into his new role and we are delighted that he will continue to contribute towards the success of the Group."
