As the headline suggests, Cohort Studios in Dundee has appointed its first marketing manager. Grant Alexander is the gentleman in question. With a background in retail, tourism and marketing to today’s ‘youths’, Grant will be bringing a fresh approach to traditional games marketing.
In the (admittedly very slick) press release, Mr Alexander commented: “This really is an exciting time to be joining Cohort Studios. In addition to the larger development projects, the studio has been developing a couple of high quality games that are due for release in the next few months – so be sure to keep a lookout for a ‘monster’ of a PSP/PS3 Minis game!”
Always looking for new opportunities, Cohort are currently expanding their publishing business with the first of their self-
funded and self-published titles due for release during Q2 2011.
Lol Scragg, CEO of Cohort Studios, added: “Grant is an important addition to our team as we move towards the release
of our first self-published title. His marketing experience and enthusiasm for the games industry is already having a great
effect within the studio as we move in a different direction following a challenging 2010”.
We’d like to welcome Grant on board too and look forward to many happy and mutually beneficial updates and releases from Cohort in the near future.
