K2 Network has announced the addition of Erick Hachenburg, the CEO of Metacafe, to its board of directors.
Hachenburg is a 15-year veteran of the online and gaming industry, having served as Electronic Arts' senior vice president of global online publishing and managing director of EA China prior to joining Metacafe.
"Erick brings a wealth of experience in all aspects of the online world to K2 Network as we strive to differentiate ourselves by delivering what our gamers want through better community service and our Free2Play pricing model," said Joshua Hong, CEO of K2 Network.
"Attracting key board members like Erick couldn't be more timely given his experience and insights gained from founding Pogo.com and building EA's global online publishing business."
Hachenburg joined EA following the company's 2001 acquisition of Pogo.com, the industry leader in the casual games market that Hachenburg founded and built to nearly 1.5 million subscribers.
"This is an exciting time in online entertainment and social media, and companies such as K2 Network face a great opportunity to grow their businesses into global industry leaders," Hachenburg said.
"I'm pleased to serve as an advisor to the executive team during this exciting time in the company's history."
