With so many games released this year, and many more next year, our marketing efforts need more structured approach, especially in USA, where we have so many customers. With Larissa's experience, we are going to do an even better job at reaching and retaining our audience. San Francisco was natural choice as the place for our marketing office because of its access to the best talent and proximity to the headquarters of Apple and Google. Our goal with San Francisco office is to establish a small but effective marketing team, which is going to focus on growing company's sales in the region.
