Online social games expert Bigpoint is to open an office in the UK, creating between five and ten jobs in the process.
It will be doing the same in Paris, too, as the company looks to radically expand its Western European operations. The new teams will be chiefly tasked with growing Bigpoint’s sales networks.
Former ITV International marketing director and Bigpoint’s current product marketing boss Paul Raven will head up the London office. Meanwhile, Cédric Génin joins the firm from SFR and becomes MD of the French and Italian operations. He has previously worked for Activision and Infogrames.
In addition, new Italian and Spanish offices will open in Q2 2012.
“With over 1,000 media partners from all corners of the globe, we have created a one-of-a-kind sales and distribution network for online games,” Bigpoint CEO Heiko Hubertz stated.
“Our efforts will be aimed at cultivating our regional contact partners in Western Europe to expand our position as market leader.”
