Midway has a new European boss, with Martin Spiess joining the company today.
Spiess joins following the departure of erstwhile European managing director Tony Adams and brings with him over 18 years of games marketing, sales and management experience. Prior to joining Midway, he was senior VP of marketing for Atari, having formerly held senior roles at Crave and Virgin Interactive.
"Driving growth in European territories is a major initiative for Midway," said president and CEO David Zucker. "We consider ourselves very fortunate to have an experienced and talented industry veteran like Martin Spiess running our European operation."
Spiess added: "Midway has enormous potential for expansion in the European territory and this is an opportunity to build one of the strongest sales, marketing and distribution companies in the industry."
