Jagex promotes PR director to VP of comms

UK independent games developer Jagex has promoted Sam Forrest to VP of communications.

Forrest was previously PR director, a position he had held since August 2012. He has over 19 years of PR experience in the games and entertainment sectors working for THQ, Activision and SCi Games.

Forrest will oversee all aspects of Jagex’s global PR, video production, video marketing and events

He said, “The past 18 months have seen the PR team go from strength to strength. The in-house team has doubled in size and we’ve recruited a global agency network to support Jagex’s games and promote the studio properly for the first time. 2014 is key for Jagex with the launch of Transformers Universe, and I relish the challenge that comes with this new role as we solidify Jagex’s position as a UK development powerhouse.”
