We are optimistic that with Anuj’s industry knowledge and experience in the field of technology, esports, and gaming, we will be able to make JetSynthesys’ hold in the space stronger and deeper.”

Anuj was working as the head of corporate development for the India and Middle East and North Africa (MENA) regions at Krafton for almost two years, he was also involved in building a strategy for the South Korean gaming giant in India and the MENA regions.

Prior to joining Krafton, Tandon spent more than four years as the chief executive of a Chinese video games company called Yoozoo Games in India and has also helped Nazara Technologies build its mobile gaming publishing business.

Anuj, in a statement, said, “I truly believe we are on the cusp of the most transformative period for the gaming industry in India and have a once-in-a-generation opportunity to build quality video gaming organizations from India.”

“Along with Rajan and the team, I am excited to take the momentum forward to capture this gaming opportunity for an Indian company and plan to invest and keep growing the business and hopefully take it to new heights,” he added.
