Infogrames has promoted Mathias Hautefort to head of global distribution for Atari products in the US, Europe and Asia.
The move follows the high-profile signing of Phil Harrison, former Sony exec, as president of Infogrames.
"[Hautefort] is a key member of the company and as executive vice president for worldwide publishing and production, he has been successful to trigger a relaunch of the publishing initiatives of the Group," commented David Gardner, CEO of Infogrames.
"I am confident in his sales experience and his organisational and management skills to give a new impetus to Group distribution."
Hautefort joined the company last year and was responsible for developing IP and managing product development.
"My appointment as head of global distribution is a new exciting challenge for me," said Hautefort.
"Recent appointments of David Gardner and Phil Harrison is not only a new momentum in Infogrames' history but also in my career and I am thrilled to think it will be the most exciting one."
