Singapore, August 31st, 2015 - Stanley Liew, CFO of Cherry Credits, will be appointed as the interim CEO of Cherry Credits following Mr. Addison Kang’s departure. Cherry Credits is a wholly owned subsidiary of Shanda Games International (SDGi) where Mr. Kang is the Vice-President, a position which he will also relinquish.

Mr. Chien Dong Hai, CEO of Shanda Games International, commented today:

  • “Addison has founded and made significant contributions to the development and growth of Cherry Credits during his eight years leading the business. His strategic leadership, energy and commitment have been the hallmarks of his tenure as CEO. Addison has left a strong legacy in the game publishing as well as fintech industry where he founded the early micro-payment business. I am sure everyone in Cherry Credits is equally saddened by his departure. Nonetheless, we wish him all the best for his future endeavors”.

Commenting on his decision to step down, Mr. Kang said:

  • “After more than 8 years of leading Cherry Credits, progressing from Micro-Payment to MMORPG and Mobile Games publishing, I feel the time is right for me to pass the experience and value I have acquired by making investment into the next generation. It is a real testament to the commitment of my colleagues that we have made Cherry Credits into the global payment leader it is today. I am proud for having led this business and as Publishing Producer of Dragon Nest SEA, I would like to thank all the players and fans for their steadfast support. I have absolute confidence in the existing team, especially in Stanley who co-founded the company, and I look forward to seeing Cherry Credits’ next achievement”.
