Robert Chamberlain comes armed with three decadesâ?? experience in the finance sector

Casual gaming pioneer PopCap has hired a 20-year tech veteran to take up the role of Chief Financial Officer.

The newly-appointed Robert Chamberlain, who’s spent around three decades in the finance sector, lavished much praise on his new company.

“PopCap’s something of an anomaly in the software business – and a rarity in the technology sector as a whole,” he said.

“[PopCap has been] profitable from day one while growing to nearly 250 fulltime employees in ten years while never taking outside funding, which is a major accomplishment.

"Best of all, the company has tremendous potential, in terms of geographic, platform and channel growth – and I’m excited to be a part of it.”

Chamberlain joins PopCap as CFO after his work at firms such as F5 Networks, Onyx Software and Watchguard Technologies.
