As stated in Windward’s Core Values, we are extremely particular when it comes to choosing only the best “A-Players” to join the Windward Team. This rule applies to our executives as well. The Windward Studios executive team is comprised of savvy business leaders and industry experts, bringing years of experience to a rising company.
