Sega Europe has promoted Karl Johns to become head of UK sales
Johns, formerly business sector manager at Sega Europe, steps up to replace John Clark – who became Sega’s UK MD in April.
“I am delighted to announce the promotion of Karl to head of UK sales for Sega Europe,” said Clark.
“Karl has been with Sega for nearly six years playing an active and crucial role in the development and success of Sega in that time.
“The last two years specifically have seen Sega rise to become one of the UK’s leading publishers in the video games industry and Karl’s role within this has been key.
“Karl now takes full responsibility of the UK Sales team and driving the business forward with all retail and distribution partners.”
Before his time at Sega, Johns worked as national account manager at Midway.
Elsewhere, Simon Cowley joins the Sega UK sales team as national account manager, reporting to Johns. Cowley moves over from South Peak.
