Konami merges German and UK arms to launch new European HQ
Konami has today announced that it will merge its German and UK offices to create a new European base of operations in a bid to get closer to the gaming community.
Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH revealed in an official statement that it will merge with the holding company Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. to form a new European Headquarters in the UK.
Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. will act as the European HQ in UK from the start of fiscal year April 2013, while the publisher’s local offices in France, Germany, Spain and UK will retain their regional responsibilities.
Shinji Hirano, President for Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH explained the move, “These are changes to match a very exciting and challenging time for video game publishers.”
“We want to show our commitment to the consumers in each territory by establishing close relationships that deliver what they particularly want and need, and to create rapport between us that benefits both sides.”
