Mattel hires Mike DeLaet as its new global head of digital gaming


The long time games industry vet will lead the company’s efforts to ramp up its digital gaming product offerings

Mattel announced today that it’s hired Mike DeLaet as global head of digital gaming.

In his new role, he will oversee Mattel163, the company’s partnership with NetEase which focuses on publishing games based on Mattel’s intellectual property.
