Dallas PC Gaming Hardware Company Glorious Gets New CEO Following Francisco Partners Investment

Glorious started out by making mousepads after finding most gaming equipment to be low-quality and high-cost. Its product lineup now includes ultra-lightweight gaming mice, custom keyboards, and other accessories. Now, with its first strategic growth investment, it plans to continue building its gaming peripherals, grow into adjacent product categories, and grow its geographic footprint. As a result of the deal, Glorious’ founder and CEO, Shazim Mohammad, will move to a "significant" equity holder role as Glorious' chief visionary. New CEO Pat Wachendorf comes from a previous COO post at a Danish gaming peripherals company that sold for $1.25B this year.
