Catalina Lou
Director of EMEA Video Games, Console and PC

Originally from Spain, with a detour via Stockholm, Catalina is now based in Dublin working at Facebook as Director of EMEA Video Games, Console and PC. 

She has worked in the gaming industry for over 13 years, running publishing divisions at European and Global levels. During this time she has seen the evolution of games into services, the birth of the Apple and Google platforms and the overall change of the gaming ecosystem.

Her gaming career began in 2004 when Catalina was part of a start-up called iFone based in Manchester, with the role of VP Sales EMEA. They were later acquired by Glu Mobile, where Catalina ran the EMEA Publishing Group. Her next role was at EA, where she spent almost 5 years as Senior Director of Mobile Publishing for EMEA and LATAM and over two years as a General Manager of PC F2P Division.

As mother of two girls Catalina is busy traveling around the world but making sure to have time for yoga, swimming, DJ-ing and motor biking!
