Online game publisher Nexon America (MapleStory, Kart Rider) has named Daniel S. Kim its new CEO, the company said today. A subsidiary of Korean parent company Nexon, Nexon America is based in Los Angeles and primarily localizes and markets imported titles. The company specializes in free-to-play online multiplayer games. Prior to his new position, which is effective immediately, Kim served as executive vice president with Nexon's global strategy group in Korea. "Nexon emerged as an innovator in the gaming industry by mapping its own direction, and I believe in maintaining this spirit as CEO," said Kim. "There’s great potential in this company, and what we can deliver to the entertainment marketplace in North America. Nexon pioneered the free-to-play model in North America, and I’m thrilled to join Nexon America to continue to lead the market with more high quality, live gaming experiences for our users." When contacted by Gamasutra, a Nexon America representative said John H. Chi, Nexon America's previous president and CEO, is no longer with the company, and the role of company president is currently unfilled.
