Leading games trade website, GamesIndustry.biz, has announced promotions internally that sees Matt Martin become the new site editor, while former editor Phil Elliott moves up to take on the role of managing editor.
The changes follow a strong year for the company, including a complete site redesign as well as the launches of the GamesIndustry.biz Network and GamesIndustry.biz Career Fair.
"I'm pleased with the progress we've made in the past year, and I think these changes will continue to play to the strengths of the team - Matt's doing a great job on the day-to-day news side of things, while Phil's been instrumental in bringing about change and taking our external relationships to the next level," said Rupert Loman, managing director of the Eurogamer Network. "There are lots of exciting things planned for the next twelve months - it's going to be great to watch it all happen."
GamesIndustry.biz recently hired James Lee to the deputy editor position, and is currently looking for a new US editor to replace Mark Androvich, who left the company in July.
Matt Martin has been with GamesIndustry.biz since 2006 with previous experience on publications from Informa Group, Intent Media, Future Publishing, Imagine Publishing and Tudor Rose, amongst others. Phil Elliott joined the company in July 2007, and was previously editor of GameSpot UK as well as consumer technology and gaming corespondent for BBC Radio Five Live.
