Unity Technologies has hired two new industry veterans, with former Autodesk European sales manager Andrew Brammall and one-time GarageGames director of licensing Davey Jackson joining as regional sales directors for Europe and North America respectively.
"I'm delighted to be joining the Unity team at such an exciting time in the company's history," enthused Brammall. "I've been an admirer from afar for a while, and the combination of cool technology, bright people and an amazing community of users is remarkable."
"Unity has shown a tremendous commitment to developers by creating powerful, accessible technology and providing paths for developers to succeed in emerging game markets," added Jackson. "I'm happy to be joining this continuously visonary company. The broad adoption of Unity in these markets, particularly for web and mobile games, is helping everyone from individuals to major publishers participate in this growth."
The pair take on their new roles as Unity 3's release draws near. Brammall brings additional experience having held sales positions at Kynogon SA and Havok, while Jackson can call on his five years growing annual revenues and building relationships with a range of education, simulation and console development clients.
“Unity has grown beyond our expectations, and we are continually amazed at how broadly it is being used by advertising agencies, educational institutions and game developers," concluded David Helgason, CEO of Unity Technologies. "Boosting our sales teams in both Europe and North America will put us in a better position to stay close to our customers and continue helping them succeed."
Brammall assumes his role in Unity's UK office in Crawley, while Jackson is to work out of the San Francisco headquarters.
