CCP, makers of the popular space MMO EVE Online, has announced the hiring of a new CMO (Chief Marketing Officer) to its corporate lineup.
David Reid, formerly of Trion Worlds (Rift) and NCsoft West (Aion, City of Heroes), will take over global marketing efforts for EVE Online and Dust 514. Reid will be based from his California office rather than moving to Iceland.
“With his extensive experience working for top gaming companies and clear expertise in leading titles to massive market success, David will no doubt make a tremendous impact on our team,” CCP CEO Hilmar Veigar Pétursson said. “As we enter one of the most important years in CCP’s history, we’ll rely heavily on David to help us bring our revolutionary gaming experiences to even more players, on more platforms, around the world.”
