Trion Worlds has added three more MMO specialists to its team – Jonathan Goddard, Jeff Pabst, and Simon Bull.
Goddard, joining as head of European PR, previously worked at EA Games for four years as senior international PR manager, and was recently the global PR and marketing manager at Polish publisher City Interactive.
Jeff Pabst will be taking up responsibility as European commerce director. His last position was as the head of International Product Management and Strategy for Xbox.
Simon Bull joins the team as senior brand director for End of Nations and third-party publishing.
“As Trion endeavours to drive its European business forward, it’s vital we attract the industry’s best talent,” said Trion Worlds’ European SVP and GM John Burns.
“Building on Rift’s successful launch and ensuring our other projects generate the buzz they richly deserve are our key priorities, and I’m delighted we are forging the right team to help us achieve these goals.”
The company’s recruited a few more talented individuals as well. These include former lead game master at Ubisoft Paris Franck Vacher, who’s joined the company as French community manager for End of Nations, and Lee Sritharan who’s left EA to join Trion as business intelligence director.
Finally, Kevin Taylor has been promoted from his previous role of product and PR support and has now been assigned with a more important task of being the European product manager for Rift.
