Twain Harte, CA – September 26, 2012 – Reverb Publishing has announced that it has brought on Brian Harvey, former Sr. Partnerships Manager at OnLive, to join their ranks as Director of Strategic Partnerships. Harvey brings 15 years of experience in the games industry and a varied background in the technology and gaming field to Reverb.

Harvey is a respected veteran of the video gaming industry, working as a Sr. Developer Account Manager at NVIDIA for 10 years before moving into a marketing position at Akamai Technologies and, most recently, as the Senior Partnerships Manager for OnLive, a role that included acquiring content for the service, negotiating contracts with developers and publishers alike, and serving as an Executive Producer for AAA SKUs.
