Trade in PR merry-go-round

Some of the industry’s most recognised PR execs have moved into new roles this week.

At Microsoft, UK PR manager for Xbox & Games for Windows Andy Irving has taken a job in the firm’s marketing team. MCV understands that this will involve looking after a number of first party titles and working on third party marketing programs.

Irving joined Microsoft from Lunch PR back in 2007, where he was a senior account exec. Previous to this, he worked as reviews editor on Future’s Official Xbox Magazine.

Meanwhile, industry veteran Mark Allen has left 505 Games to join Kalypso Media, MCV can reveal. Allen is a former Activision and Eidos exec.

Elsewhere, Ubisoft UK PR boss Manab Roy has
left the French publisher – but his destination is as
yet unknown.
