Long-serving Microsoft exec Harvey Eagle has this week been appointed the new marketing director for Xbox UK.
Eagle was previously Interactive Entertainment Business Category Director across the EMEA region, working for Jeremy Dale.
Prior to that, he has been a key member of the EMEA Xbox team for the last 12 years. He joined in 2000 as EMEA advertising manager, before moving to the role of Interactive Entertainment Business CategoryLead for western Europe.
Jonathan Grimes, head of Microsoft’s retail sales and marketing division in the UK said: “Harvey brings with him a wealth of experience and I’m very excited to have him join the Retail Sales and Marketing team to lead the IEB business, in what is going to be a very exciting time.”
Eagle added: “I'm privileged to join a team that has already achieved leadership position in a market where the competition is fierce and ever-changing. Every single person on the planet likes to be entertained. When you think of Xbox as an entertainment service that will show up on any device, you realise our journey has only just begun.”
