Viximo, a Cambridge, MA-based company that specializes in distributing social games beyond Facebook, has opened a new office in San Francisco and hired game industry veteran Sutton Trout to its management team. Trout, who was most recently VP of digital content and technology sales at gaming website network IGN Entertainment, will head Viximo's sales and business development. He's also previously held positions at video game companies like Sega of America, Sony Computer Entertainment, Eidos Interactive, and Konami. Viximo says that its new Bay Area location and Trout's appointment highlight its dedication to helping both social networks and game developers/publishers "enhance their offerings with compelling entertainment content and systematic revenue support." Founded in 2007, Viximo runs a platform that helps developers publish and monetize their social games beyond Facebook and across multiple social networks, such as BlackPlanet, Quepasa, IMVU, and others. Its network of partners reach over 60 million users. "We are thrilled to have Sutton on board," says Viximo CEO Dale Strang. "His experience in pioneering digital game distribution, combined with his many years in the games business is a critical asset to our fast-growing business. We look forward to being close to key partners and the industry in the Bay Area as well as growing our team further on both coasts."
