Brighton, England, 7th July 2010. Eurogamer, Europe's leading independent games media specialist, is proud to confirm that Co-Founder and Managing Director Rupert Loman has made it into The Independent newspaper's coveted 'Hospital Club 100'.
The national broadsheet and London's Hospital Club have searched long and hard for the most influential people in the creative and media industries, with the emphasis on current contribution and importance, not just celebrity status, profile, bank balance, titles or past reputation. The list is unique in that it contains both emerging and established names, highlighting not only those who will be influencing Creative Britain's immediate future, but also in the longer term.
Loman appears in the Emerging Digital category and joins a host of big names from a variety of creative fields including; film, TV, music, digital and publishing, setting him alongside the likes of Kate Moss, Ian McEwan, Simon Cowell, Tracey Emin and Gandalf.
"It's an honour to have made it on to the final list. Appearing in the same category as the founders of Spotify and Tweetdeck is a great achievement I shall dine out on for days to come." More details of the winners can be found here: http://www.thehospitalclub.com/100/winners.php and the full list is published in today's Independent newspaper.
