Retail guru Anna Downing has joined Sega as senior product manager.
Downing has worked in games retail for almost ten years in a variety of buying and marketing roles.

“I’m delighted to have joined Sega at this particularly exciting time,” commented Downing. “In addition to their renowned gaming heritage and fantastic catalogue of software products, Sega has a fantastic line-up for 2010 and beyond.”
Sega’s UK marketing director Amanda Farr added: “We are very pleased Anna has joined the UK team. She has a wealth of marketing and retail experience which will benefit the quality line up of products that Sega has to offer.”
