"I'm thrilled to be joining Artificial Mind & Movement at this exciting time," said Leece. "I look forward to helping the company extend and expand its relationships with our current publishing partners, as well as looking for new strategic relationships in all aspects of the interactive industry."
"Mr. Leece brings considerable experience in business development and publishing in the video game industry, and we couldn't be more excited to add him to our team," commented Remi Racine, president and CEO of Artificial Mind & Movement. “Under his guidance, we look forward to strengthening our position as one of the world's top independent studios."
In his new role, Leece will oversee North American business development working from the company's Montreal studios, and contribute to increasing its strategic market opportunities.
