eSports Pro appoints Tucker as editor

Jake Tucker has joined MCV’s sister title eSports Pro as editor. Previously he was a contributor on Develop, but he’s also written for a number of other publications including, International Business Times, Waypoint and Pocket Gamer. He’s also the director of Video Brains, a monthly program of talks on games. 

Dillon and Beckett land new positions at Premier

Premier PR has two new appointments this month. Lauren Dillon has been promoted to senior account director, taking responsibility for the day-to-day management of the team, and Will Beckett is “thrilled” to be rejoining the team after a year of working in China. He’s also been appointed as senior account director, but will be largely focused on business development and client services. 

Beckett said he was “looking forward to bringing a broad offering that isn’t limited to bread-and-butter PR, but really makes use of this company’s amazing pool of talent across all aspects of marketing,” while Dillon said she was looking forward “to bringing more awesomeness to our clients, old and new.” 

Curve Digital hires Nangle

Charlotte Nangle has joined Curve Digital as business development manager. “Charlotte is a significant hire for us,” said Curve chairman Stuart Dinsey. “The digital games market continues to evolve in all territories and we are well placed to help retailers and commercial partners increase their sales.”
