Ex-Eidos exec appointed as Women in Games CEO

Not-for-profit organisation Women in Games Jobs has hired the former head of business development for New Media at Eidos as its first CEO.

Gina Jackson, who has also worked at companies such as Kuju and Ocean Software, will work on developing partnerships and initiatives for the organisation to help encourage the recruitment of more women in the games industry.

WIGJ has made great strides since it was founded in 2009 with a network of over 3000 supporters worldwide," said Women in Games Jobs founder David Smith.

"We think Gina will help bring WIGJ to the next level of becoming a professional membership organisation capable of working with government, trade bodies, employers, those already working in games and job seekers to campaign for a more inclusive games sector for the benefit of the games industry as a whole.”
