In a shock move, former HMV games controller Neil Martin is to join GAME as group brand manager for PC.
Martin joins the specialist giant this August and is currently working out his notice at the entertainment retailer.
“Neil has fantastic industry experience and personality and will be a great asset to us,” GAME’s buying director Alex Croft told MCV. “We’re looking forward to welcoming him.”
HMV head of games Tim Ellis commented: “We have some exciting plans for games and it’s a real pity Neil will no longer be a part of this.”
