SEOUL, Feb. 26 (Yonhap) -- Netmarble Games, South Korea's No. 1 mobile game developer and publisher, said Monday that it has named Park Sean as its new CEO.

Park -- the former chief strategy officer (CSO) of the operator of South Korea's top mobile messenger, KakaoTalk -- will co-head Netmarble with incumbent chief Kwon Young-sig.

Kwon will spearhead Netmarble's game business, while Park will head the company's strategy and investment, the company said.

Park, a graduate of Seoul National University, spent his earlier career at various consulting firms. Since 2016, he had served as CSO for Kakao and CEO for LOEN Entertainment Inc., a subsidiary of Kakao. LOEN operates South Korea's major music streaming service, Melon.

Netmarble earlier announced that its sales for 2017 reached a record high of 2.42 trillion won (US$2.2 billion) on the back of the global popularity of its latest game product, "Lineage 2 Revolution."
