Take one-third of Fuchi, combine it with Richard Villiers’ personal business empire and you get Novatech, the newest player on the corporate stage.
Novatech managed to hold its ground in Seattle and hang on to the former Fuchi compound in Downtown, but not a whole lot else. The corporation is doing a lot of restructuring, as they like to call it, which means careers made and broken every day and high stakes for everyone involved. Novatech is hungry to build the kind of rep Fuchi had, and they have no problem with hiring as many shadowrunners as it takes to get them to that point.
Novatech Seattle is an important facility because it is the corp’s gateway to the Pacific Rim and Asia. Samantha Villiers, Richard’s ex-wife, runs the division skillfully and has maintained a completely loyal business relationship with Richard. Samantha pays a lot of visits to Novatech’s headquarters in Boston and spends a lot of time “in conference” with her ex-husband.
