Premier’s games director Gareth Williams stated: “Tom’s work with the likes of Curve, Telltale and Nexon has been brilliant of late. His commitment to his clients, but also to doing the best job for them he can, is to be admired.
“Daniela has excelled in her work over the past year, driving publicity for clients such as Crytek, Wired and Square Enix. She’s a real asset to the team, and her clients couldn’t think more highly of her. I’m delighted to promote them both.”
