We’ve got some exciting news: we’ve hired games industry veteran Tim Flett. Tim will be our new Business Development Manager for Games and Interactive, in charge of growing our professional services, which include training, technical consulting as well as hardware and software solutions.
Tim has spent more than 15 years in games developer and publisher relations. Previously he worked for Sony Computer Entertainment Europe, managing third party relations. He was in charge of the development tools and communication team, responsible for the ongoing guidance and support for major developers, publishers and licensees looking to use the PlayStation® platforms. He was also the mastermind behind the hugely successful DevStation™, the PlayStation development conferences.
Tim said “I'm thrilled to be part of such an exciting company. Escape Studios is doing some fantastic things across all parts of its business, and I'm hoping my expertise can help it grow even further."
Mark Cass, Commercial Director of Escape Studios, said “Tim has a huge amount of knowledge and experience in the games industry, and is a strong addition to the Escape team. Just as we are growing our games courses, so we are looking to improve our reach into the games industry via our burgeoning software and hardware sales division.”
Prior to joining Escape Studios, Tim was Developer Relations Manager for Emergent Game Technologies, managing the EMEA territory sales. We’re really looking forward to seeing all the great work Tim will be doing for us, and hopefully he’ll be blogging about the games industry soon, so keep an eye out.
