I am so proud to say Cinzia Musio is our Interim CEO who will continue to keep us accountable and ensure that we are able to live and create the work environment that we are so determined to change in the industry as a whole.

I’m going back on parental leave and have been privileged with my formidable team who have allowed me to continue to work in a way that makes sense with kindness and compassion.” says Tara Mustapha, Founder and current CEO at Code Coven.

In their interim role as Code Coven CEO, Cinzia says “I discovered Code Coven through connecting with Tara and I strongly know that my own progress and DEI journey has been closely interlinked with the narrative and growth of this great organisation.

Cinzia Musio will be using their operations experience combined with knowledge of the gaming industry to support Code Coven.
