Rovio’s head of advertising is the latest exec to quit the company

Jarkko Rajamäki, the head of advertising Rovio Entertainment, is the latest executive to announce his departure from the company.

Effective immediately, Rajamäki will leave Rovio, the developers of the Angry Birds franchise, to take up the head of business role at California tech firm Burstly.

Rajamäki told the Wall Street Journal that there was nothing “dramatic” about his exit from the Finnish company.

However he is among a number of high profile executives to have left Rovio in recent months.

Harri Koponen recently left as chief operating officer while Rovio’s US-based head of strategic partnerships Andrew Stalbow left the company in June.

In 2012 Rovio also lost its head of marketing and communications and the executive in charge of game development.‬
