According to this GI story, Frank Sliwka, the organiser of GCDC and GCAC, is to leave Leipziger Messe for Global Games Media, a marketing and communication company.

“I spent wonderful years with Leipziger Messe,” he said. “However, I’m now looking forward to starting from October onwards a new challenge as the CEO of Global Games Media Ltd.”

The move comes as Games Conventions fortunes look certain to change in the face of next year’s gamescom in Cologne.

Sliwka was a well known figure of the Games Convention “scene,” and is a thoroughly nice chap. Good luck, Frank.
