Please join us in welcoming Steven Craft as the new CEO of vTime. Steven brings a wealth of gaming and XR experience and a proven track record that aligns with our mission and values to guide us into our next chapter of growth.
At the heart of some of gaming's most iconic moments, Steven played a pivotal leadership role at Traveller’s Tales, where he was instrumental in producing titles that amassed over $1.5 billion in sales, including the renowned Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga. As the founder and CEO of Paw Print Games, a studio known for its award-winning titles spanning mobile, PC, console, and VR, he drove over 90% of revenue from global markets, leading to his title as DIT's Export Champion before joining vTime in 2018.
Formerly vTime’s COO, Steven’s influence extends beyond commercial success. His tenure on the Greater Manchester Export Fund board resulted in the creation and protection of 1,000 jobs and leveraged £35m in private sector investment, while his collaborations with UCL and Chester University as a course mentor and honorary research assistant have empowered countless young developers.
vTime Founder Martin Kenwright said: “Over the last five years, Steven has showcased remarkable vision and dedication at vTime. His leadership qualities and experience speak volumes, and I’m eager to watch vTime’s legacy grow under his direction.”
vTime CEO Steven Craft said: “I’m joining vTime as CEO at one of the most exciting points in the company’s history. With an incredible team uniquely placed in both experience and core competencies, an AI-powered tech stack that can combine to create incredible experiences and games across all platforms and realities, and of course our new division, vTime Games, I’m looking forward to pushing the boundaries of what’s possible.”
As we welcome Steven, we bid farewell to Clemens Wangerin. After ten years of service, Clemens has decided to step down to pursue other interests. We want to extend our gratitude to Clemens for his work and the contributions made during his tenure.
Here's to the exciting times ahead!
