Publisher Ubisoft has bolstered its UK team with the appointment of Gareth Evans as business account manager.
Evans joins the firm from Capcom and has five years experience working on brands such as Resident Evil. At Ubisoft, he will work primarily with HMV, Sainsbury’s, TRU, Ireland and independents.
The publisher has also announced two internal promotions. Andy Wallace has moved to the role of online sales manager. As well as handling the online accounts, Wallace will work on the publisher’s UK digital strategy.
Meanwhile, Michael Rotchell has been promoted to the newly created role of UK sales manager. Rotchell will oversee the whole sales department and look to continue Ubisoft’s relationship with UK partners.
“Given the number of releases, and breadth of titles we have across our range, it became clear that we needed to add an extra person to continue to provide the best service to our customers,” said Ubisoft’s UK sales director Darren Bowen.
“Gareth’s experience makes him ideal to complement our existing team, and I’m really pleased to have him on board.
“I believe we have a strong sales team at Ubisoft, who pride themselves on their product knowledge, relationships and results, and I am delighted to be able to develop both Andy and Michael’s roles. They have both done a fantastic job over the past few years.”
