Martin Spiess' new publishing outfit Tradewest is already marking its territory in the UK – it has promoted Nick Howard to MD.
Howard will oversee UK sales and marketing at the European games publisher, which was formed via an MBO by Spiess when Midway Europe closed down during the summer.
He previously worked with the Tradewest team when at Midway as European sales director – he has over 12 years experience in the industry, having also worked at GSP Software and Koch Media.
“We’re delighted to have Nick as our new managing director,” said Spiess, CEO of Tradewest Games.
‘’Nick has been a key contributor to our business over the years and we are confident that his appointment will accelerate Tradewest’s growth strategy.’’
Tradewest, a full service provider in games distribution and publishing, is currently in the midst of signing and establishing its product portfolio.
“We’re currently in final negotiations with renowned developers and publishers in order to create a well-balanced portfolio of products,” explained Howard.
