“I’ve known Peter for many years and can’t think of a better fit for our board at this stage in Disruptor Beam’s growth,” said Jon Radoff, CEO & Founder of Disruptor Beam. “In the last year, especially with our recent launch of Star Trek Timelines, we’ve experienced over 300% revenue growth and now employ over 75 people on our team. Peter shares our passion for the mobile game space and for growing a business here in Massachusetts, as well as bringing a wealth of consumer knowledge and marketing experience to our team—all reasons that we are delighted he’ll be by our side as we continue to level up.
