Catalis Group, the owner of our Corporate Ambassador Testronic, has moved into the art and game development sector with the acquisition of Secret 6, which is based in Manila and Madrid.

Founded in 2005 by Ron Schaffner, Secret 6 employs over 300 people and specialises in 3D art for AAA titles, 2D art, full game development and quality assurance. Schaffner will continue to run Secret 6 as CEO with the added support of Catalis and its service companies, Testronic and Giant Interactive.

Testronic CEO Mike Betti offered: “Secret 6 is a fantastic addition to our group. Ron and his talented team have built a brilliant business and we cannot wait to contribute to their story going forward. Moving into art and game development is a natural next step for Catalis, and it is great that we can expand our footprint to the Philippines and Spain, two fast-growing video game hubs with an abundance of talent.”

Schaffner added: “We are thrilled to be joining Catalis, a group highly regarded for their excellent service offerings. We look forward to collaborating with Catalis to accelerate the group’s growth, enhance and expand the services we offer to our clients, and provide exciting new opportunities for our talented teams in Manila and Madrid.”
