In the past week Andrew Kertesz (Mojo Linden) has become the new Vice President of Engineering at Linden Lab. Andrew has more than 20 years experience in the games industry and he is an expert in building teams and launching groundbreaking games across genres that push respective platforms.

Andrew Kertesz takes over the post left by Oz Linden back in late February 2021 who left after a decade with Linden Lab. Andrew joined Linden Lab at the end of July 2021 from Level Ex Inc apparently. Andrew will be responsible for the simulator and the viewer engineering teams along with much more I would imagine over time.
