Murphy has been with Kongregate since 2014 and has held several leadership positions during the engineering period, most recently as Senior Vice President of Engineering.

Shaw joins the leadership team as Director of Blockchain Operations and will oversee day-to-day administrative and business functions for its blockchain operations.

Shaw joined Kongregate in 2016 and was responsible for overseeing its marketing and user acquisition initiatives, most recently as senior vice president of marketing. Prior to Kongregate, Shaw held positions at Gameloft and Wikia.

The newest of the three to join Kongregate and a veteran of the games industry, Moran will transition from chief product officer to vice president of games.

In the new role, Moran will lead the strategic direction and execution of first-party business operations for Kongregate’s mobile games. Prior to joining Kongregate in 2019, Moran held positions at MobilityWare, BioWare, Disney Interactive Studios, and Amazon, among others.

The new appointments have been made as the company plans to accelerate its presence in the blockchain gaming industry with its recently launched blockchain gaming division.

Last month, newly launched Finnish gaming startup Social First made its first three strategic hires for development operations, design and new technologies, including blockchain.
