505 Games has strengthened its growing team with the impressive appointment of former Activision and Eidos stalwart Bob Burridge as UK sales director.
The new hire comes shortly after former UK sales head Ralph Pitt-Stanley was promoted to the position of commercial director last month.
Like many of 505’s key personnel, Burridge was a star of the Activision team that helped the company enjoy such success in the early-mid Noughties. More recently he was UK general manager at Eidos.
Burridge told MCV: “505 Games has a very unique position in the marketplace. It is a young vibrant dynamic company and I am proud to be joining such a committed and respected team of people, in a position where I can bring real benefit.”
505 Games’ Pitt-Stanley added: “505 Games is always looking to recruit exceptional talent. Bringing Bob into the fold is testament to the fact that, in just a few short years, we have built a respected team and business able to attract the best talent in the business.”
Burridge’s appointment comes as 505 celebrates the arrival of IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey in the All Formats Top 10 this week. The firm releases Cooking Mama 3 in November.
