Daniel Alegre has worked at Google for 16 years and Blizzard before taking the seat of Yuga Labs CEO. Daniel’s appointment comes at a time when Yuga Labs is focusing on building Otherside, a metaverse MMORPG project. The new CEO will take charge of the company in the first half of 2023.

Why the New Appointment Now and Why it Matters?

Yuga Labs is the developer of one of the most successful NFT projects, the Bored Ape Yacht Club. It has massive expansion plans and clearly intends to make headlines in the blockchain and metaverse industry. The inception of Otherside 2022 is one of these headline-making platforms. With Otherside, the users can turn their NFTs into playable avatars. 

For the development of Otherside, Yuga Labs is partnering with Animoca Brands. The development structure also includes Improbable’s MSquared platform. As Yuga Labs brings the former COO and President of Blizzard, Daniel Alegre, to take charge, it is clear the Yuga Labs wants to take the number one spot in the Web3 space. In addition to this, Yuga Labs is also onboarding other highly proficient and expert personalities into their team. 

Daniel Alegre will work with the founders of Yuga Labs, Wylie Aronow and Greg Solano, to take the company forward. The current Yuga Labs CEO, Nicole Muniz, will stay in the company in the position of strategic partner and strategic advisor. 

The new Yuga Labs CEO has been in the news, but not for all the good reasons. But this did not stop the Yuga Labs founders from hiring Danial Alegre. The new CEO, Wylie Aronow, says, “Daniel has held one of the highest-level roles at one of the largest gaming companies in the world. He brings valuable experience across entertainment, e-commerce, and global strategic partnerships – all of which are critical aspects of an immersive web3 world built by creators and for creators.” 

Going forward, Yuga Labs will hunt for more talent and people with special skills to join the company.
