Develop can confirm that Alex McLean is to take over as studio head of Codemasters Birmingham.
The co-founder of Pivotal became technical director at Codemasters earlier in the year following a stint at Engine Room Games.
He helped open Pivotal, known for its Conflict series, which ran for eight years until it was shutdown by Eidos.
McLean has been promoted to replace Trevor Williams, who we this morning confirmed had left Codemasters.
Gavin Cheshire, VP of Codemasters Studios told us: "Moving forward, Technical Director Alex McLean will take up a new post as studio head, Codemasters Birmingham.
"Having formed and managed studios in the past, most notably Pivotal Games, he’ll be a great asset as the Birmingham studio ramps up for the delivery of new titles next year."
