The company today announced that industry veteran Stuart Moulder was hired as chief executive, taking over for Megan Gaiser.
Gaiser will continue to lead creative direction and business development as chief strategic and creative officer.

Moulder earlier worked at Sierra On-Line and Microsoft, on franchises such as “Age of Empires,” “Halo” and “Flight Simulator.” Most recently he was senior vice president of development at Gazillion Entertainment, working on “Lego Universe” and “Marvel Super Hero Squad Online.”
Her Interactive has been on a roll lately, extending its Nancy Drew mystery game franchise to Apple’s iOS platform in February.
More than 9 million copies of its Nancy Drew games have been sold, mostly on the PC platform. The latest version, “Nancy Drew: Captive Curse” for the PC and Mac, is coming out June 28.
