Nicholas Lovell has joined GameShadow as their Chief Executive Officer. Good luck to him.

A well-known figure in the games sector, Lovell has, for the past three years, been Managing Director of Lodestar Partners, a corporate finance boutique focused exclusively on the computer and videogame industry.

Previously, Lovell was Chief Financial Officer of ShopSmart, a venture-backed comparison shopping engine with 60 employees. ShopSmart was sold to Barclaycard in 2001. He also spent eight years at Deutsche Bank, both in equity research and corporate finance. During his tenure as Internet equity research analyst, Deutsche Bank was ranked #1 for its understanding of the Internet economy. As a corporate financier, Nicholas focused on the media and technology sectors, with a strong emphasis on games.

Tony Treadwell, founder and COO, commented, “Nicholas has been a great believer in our business and has been very supportive as Chairman for the past three years. His decision to take up an executive role at the company is a powerful indication of the potential of our business, and we are delighted to have him on board.”

Lovell comments, “The growth of digital downloads, both paid-for and free, is a huge opportunity for games companies. GameShadow is uniquely poised to maximize this opportunity, and I look forward to building on the enormous successes that Tony and the team have achieved to date.”
