Proven gaming industry executive brings 30+ years of senior financial and operational leadership from PopCap Games, F5 Networks and KPMG

SEATTLE, Sept 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Big Fish, the world's largest producer and distributor of casual games, today announced that it has appointed Robert J. Chamberlain as chief financial officer. Chamberlain is responsible for the company's global financial operations. 

Bob J. Chamberlain has joined Big Fish as the company's new chief financial officer. Bob comes to Big Fish with more than 30 years of financial and accounting experience. Bob has focused his last 20 years on rapidly growing technology companies like Big Fish. As CFO of PopCap Games, Chamberlain helped steward the company through its successful sale to Electronic Arts in 2011 for up to $1.3 billion. Earlier, as F5 Networks’ CFO, he led the company’s initial public offering and follow-on offerings.

For the last two decades, Chamberlain has been a senior financial executive for rapidly growing technology companies.  As CFO of PopCap Games, Chamberlain helped steward the company through its successful sale to Electronic Arts in 2011. Earlier as F5 Networks' CFO, he led the company's initial public offering and follow-on offerings. Additionally, Chamberlain has held senior financial positions at Audience Science, Watchguard Technologies, Onyx Software and Getty Images.  Chamberlain began his career at KPMG, where he was an audit partner in the technology practice of KPMG's Seattle office.

Paul Thelen, Big Fish founder and chief executive officer, said, "After more than a decade of strong financial performance, Big Fish is now an industry-leading mobile game company. Bob's experience as a tech and game industry financial leader is an asset to our senior management team, and he's a great cultural fit.  With his impressive record of steering operational finance teams and companies through complex financial and hyper-growth life stages, Bob will help us navigate the opportunities ahead and continue our long legacy of profitable and consistent revenue growth."

"During the last three years, Big Fish has done a remarkable job of successfully transitioning from a legacy PC-based company into a mobile games leader," Chamberlain said. "To execute a successful product and platform transition while maintaining strong profitability is difficult, something its high-profile competitors have not been able to do to date. I look forward to helping Big Fish continue to build its global leadership position in the years ahead."

Chamberlain holds a B.S. in Business Administration and Accounting from California State University, Northridge.
