A message from Walter Driver & Javier Ferreira, Scopely Co-CEOs:
Today, we are incredibly proud to announce the appointment of Marcie Vu to the Scopely Board of Directors.
With proven experience providing strategic and financial advice to global technology leaders, Marcie will be an invaluable asset to Scopely. As a trusted advisor, her wealth of expertise in growing and scaling businesses will be instrumental in helping us achieve the ambitious goals we have set for Scopely. She is a true force to be reckoned with.
With more than 20 years under her belt in investment banking, we first met Marcie during her tenure as the Head of the Consumer Technology Group at Qatalyst Partners a technology-focused M&A advisory investment bank. Prior to Qatalyst, she served as the Head of Consumer Internet Investment Banking at Morgan Stanley for more than a decade and, before that, worked in mobile and instant messenger product management at Yahoo!. Marcie also currently serves as a member of the board of (Nasdaq: TDUP), one of the largest resale platforms for women’s and kids’ apparel, shoes, and accessories.
Throughout her career, Marcie has partnered with hundreds of clients to advise on transactions with an aggregate value of more than $100 billion. Her work has helped to scale countless companies; she’s advised on the IPOs of Alibaba.com, Facebook, Google, LinkedIn, and Zynga, among others, and on mergers and acquisitions, including Admob’s sale to Google, Amazon’s acquisition of Quidsi, CNET’s sale to CBS, Electronic Arts’ acquisition of JAMDAT Mobile, Honey’s sale to PayPal, LinkedIn’s sale to Microsoft, and many, many more.
We asked Marcie why she chose to join the Scopely Board, and here’s what she said: “Scopely has all the right ingredients for high growth, long-term success: an incredibly talented, strategic and ambitious team, deep relationships with players, a technology-driven platform approach, and strong business fundamentals. The company is not only a leader in games and technology, but it is building a new vision of play for consumers around the world. They have understood from the beginning that there is a fundamental need for human connection, community, and a sense of belonging, and their Playgami platform drives extraordinary engagement and deep player connections. I’m delighted to partner with Walter, Javier, Tim, and the team.”
Marcie holds a B.S. in Economics from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania and an M.B.A. from the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University.
We are excited to officially welcome Marcie as a new confidant and advisor to Scopely.
