Carl Cavers

Carl co-founded Sumo Digital in 2003, following a successful career with Gremlin Interactive and Infogrames, and the business quickly became a multi-project, multi-genre solution provider, developing award winning titles for every gaming platform. Having steered the business through a trade sale to Foundation 9 in 2007, Carl led an MBO with NorthEdge Capital in 2014, followed by a secondary MBO backed by Perwyn LLP in 2016 and the acquisition of multi award winning Atomhawk, a visual design company, in June 2017.

Sumo Group plc floated on the London Stock Exchange’s AIM in December 2017.

Carl received TIGA’s coveted Most Outstanding Individual Award in 2015 (TIGA is the trade association representing the video games industry) and he holds an honorary doctorate from Sheffield Hallam University.
