DisneyUTV Digital appoints Paul Joseph Wrider as Director Game Designing

MUMBAI: DisneyUTV Digital has appointed Paul Joseph Wrider, an old hand in the global gaming industry with 10 years of experience, as Director - Game Design for its gaming business in India.

Based out of Mumbai, Paul will lead the Game Design team and will be responsible for developing new IPs.

Before joining DisneyUTV Digital, Paul was the lead game designer at FunMobility, Inc. the social mobile entertainment company based in United States of America.

Paul has worked with top gaming companies like Digital Chocolate, Storm8 and Zynga where he successfully launched the first Facebook based, fully 3D Massively Multiplayer Online (MMO) game, ‘Guild of Heroes’, and worked on other popular titles like Mafia Wars and Vampires.

DisneyUTV MD - Digital Vishal Gondal said, “DisneyUTV Digital is happy to have Paul Wrider onboard. We believe in leveraging technology to provide our users with engaging content to enhance their digital experience and we are constantly exploring new opportunities to build on that legacy. With Paul’s extensive experience and knowledge in game designing and the global gaming industry overall we will be able to develop new gaming IPs and add to our existing popular titles across mobile platforms.”

It was in August that DisneyUTV had consolidated its digital business by bringing all its digital assets in India under a new arm, DisneyUTV Digital. The digital division was to be spearheaded by Vishal Gondal and Samir Bangara. However, Bangara had earlier this month quit the organisation.

Incidentally, both Gondal and Bangara were appointed as managing director of DisneyUTV Digital to drive the company’s future growth. The new division was given the remit to develop and manage all content and brands from Disney, Marvel and UTV Bindass, as well as original content and games.
