Vivendi has named Stephane Roussel as CEO of Gameloft, the mobile-focused games provider it acquired earlier this month in a hostile takeover. Roussel has served as chief operating officer at the media giant since November last year, having previously joined Vivendi’s management board in 2014.

Roussel previously served as CEO of SFR, prior to its acquisition by Numericable and Altice.

Vivendi has also named Roussel and four additional candidates as members of Gameloft’s administrative board. These include Sebastien Bollore, the son of Vivendi chairman Vincent Bollore, who is also president of Omnium Bollore and Blue Solutions USA, Vivendi and Canal+ secretary-general Frederic Crepin, Canal+ Regie president Francine Mayer and Canal+ CEO Maxime Saada.
