GAME logo

GAME Digital plc (“GAME” or “the Group”) is today pleased to announce a number of key promotions and appointments across the Group. These appointments follow the continued strategic progress GAME has made over the last year. 2015 has already seen the Group launch GAME Marketplace and significantly increase its gamer offering with the acquisition of Multiplay, organisers of Insomnia, the UK’s largest gaming festival, live gaming events for third parties (such as MINECON 2015) as well as providers of managed game servers through its ClanForge platform and digital solutions to game publishers and developers.

Following that acquisition, GAME has now been realigned into three new operating divisions: GAME Retail, GAME eSports and Events and GAME Digital Solutions.

As part of GAME’s ongoing commitment to deliver market leading offers and experiences to customers, Charlotte Knight has been promoted to the new role of UK Retail Managing Director with responsibility for all commercial activity in the UK, across all channels. Charlotte has held a number of commercial positions within the business over the past 13 years, including the role of UK Category Director since 2012, where she was responsible for GAME’s expanding product ranges across digital and physical, mint and pre-owned.

Pablo Crespo, Director General Spain, will continue to lead our operations in the Spanish market and will work closely with Charlotte as he becomes more involved in the group activities.

GAME also announces the appointment of Stuart Rowe to the senior team as Business Development Director.

Stuart has held senior positions at a number of consumer facing businesses over the course of his career, including the role of Managing Director of Play.com between 2005 and 2011, where he led the strategy and expansion of the business. Stuart will be responsible for all business development opportunities across the Group, as well as owning the digital solutions strategy, and will report into Martyn Gibbs, Group CEO.

Following GAME’s acquisition of Multiplay, Craig Fletcher, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Multiplay and Stewart Fletcher, Chief Operating Officer of Multiplay, also join the senior team and will help lead the expansion of GAME’s eSports, events and community based offer.

Martyn Gibbs, GAME Digital Chief Executive Officer, said:

“I’m both fortunate and excited to work alongside such a talented and dynamic senior team and am delighted to be announcing these new, senior appointments, which further strengthen our leadership team. The changes will ensure we are best placed to deliver a leading customer experience for both gamers and gifters, whilst maximising the long term growth potential of each of our divisions: GAME Retail, GAME eSports and Events and GAME Digital Solutions.”
