The head of Finnish video game publisher and Angry Birds maker Rovio will step down in 2015, replaced by longtime Nokia veteran Pekka Rantala.
Mikael Hed, who has served as Rovio CEO for five years, will likely take a seat on the company’s board of directors. Hed will also serve as chairman of Rovio Animation Studios, which oversees the company’s movies and animated series.

Rantala will take on the CEO role starting January 1, 2015. The former Nokia veteran had been serving as CEO of Finnish beverage company Hartwall.
