Hands-On Mobile finds top exec

Ex-EA bigwig Keith McCurdy added to the mobile-games publisher's development, worldwide strategy brass.


Mobile-games publisher Hands-On Mobile has tapped a former Electronic Arts executive to be one of its new leaders. Keith McCurdy--once a top exec in EA's product development, technology, and online divisions--has been announced as the new president of studios and products at Hands-On, where he will oversee the company's development studios and worldwide strategy. Among Hands-On's mobile games are Call of Duty, Call of Duty 2, The Elder Scrolls Travels: Stormhold, and True Crime.

Most recently, McCurdy helmed Blaze Entertainment, another mobile-games publisher, formerly known as Kayak Interactive. Hands-On Mobile itself underwent a recent name change, from the moniker Mforma. In March, a California judge granted a small legal victory to Yahoo in a lawsuit with Mforma. Yahoo alleged that a group of its former employees departed for Mforma and illegally took with them Yahoo trade secrets.
