A tribute to Mike Rawlinson

UKIE announced last week that director general Michael Rawlinson has decided to leave the organisation, after almost 12 years there.

Rawlinson spent his last two years at the trade body – originally named ELSPA – as director general. And during his time in this role he has significantly raised the profile of games within government, helped combat piracy and oversaw a complete rebrand for the organisation.

His biggest achievement, though, was in establishing PEGI as the sole system of classification for video games, a system he helped create in the first place.

As the ambassador for the UK games industry, Michael Rawlinson will certainly be missed. And we eagerly await to see where he turns up next.
