Ubi marketing boss moves on

Ubisoft is looking for a new marketing boss, following Murray Pannell's decision to seek a new challenge.

Pannell joined Ubisoft as UK marketing director from Xbox. He has overseen a hugely successful period for the games publisher, with Assassin's Creed, Splinter Cell and Just Dance amongst the many highpoints.

"We are sorry to lose Murray, but wish him well," Ubisoft Northern Europe managing director Rob Cooper told MCV. "He has managed our brands well and, with the help of the team around him, our marketing has been professional, creative and energetic.

"Contemplation on life after Murray has already begun, but it is certainly reassuring that he is leaving behind such a capable and experienced department."

MCV expects Pannell to stay within the entertainment industry and hopes to have news on his new career shortly.

In the meantime, readers can savour his grandstand-performance in this year's MCV Awards video:
