Brink developer Splash Damage has hired Griff Jenkins as the studio's new director of production, reporting directly to CEO Paul Wedgwood.

Jenkins was previously at Electronic Arts working on Need for Speed and FIFA franchises and has also worked on with Criterion, Kuju and Eidos.

"Following FIFA's incredible success, Griff's new role at Splash Damage will be to improve our games by improving the way we make them," said Wedgwood.
