LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- As part of its ongoing commitment to enhance the performance of its growing global workforce, mobile gaming leader PLAYSTUDIOS has named human resources veteran and executive coach Stephanie Rosol as its first Chief People Performance Officer. Ms. Rosol, who had previously consulted for the company, has 25 years of leadership development, executive coaching, and human resources experience in the gaming, technology, and hospitality sectors. Her prior engagements with PLAYSTUDIOS, its leadership, and its employees – known as playMAKERS – makes her uniquely qualified to support PLAYSTUDIOS in its efforts to strengthen the company culture and its ability to execute future plans.
“Having witnessed Stephanie Rosol’s incredible work first-hand, she is without question the most qualified and forward-thinking person to lead our company’s coaching, culture-building, diversity, and philanthropic efforts,” says PLAYSTUDIOS Founder, Chairman, and Chief Executive Officer Andrew Pascal.

In addition, she will head the company’s philanthropic foundation, with the intent of maximizing PLAYSTUDIOS’ impact in the communities where it has a presence.
“Working as an ‘outsider on the inside’ over the last four years has prepared me to identify opportunities to support playMAKERS at all levels in the pursuit of their goals. With teams and studios in cities around the world, my work is really about connecting folks so that we can best leverage our collective intelligence within the company.”
