Claire Hill will lead independent developer and publisher as it moves towards PlayStation Vita and 3DS

Icon Games, publisher of Bashi Blocks and the Arcade Sports series, has announced that Claire Hill has joined the team as managing director.

“I am delighted that Claire has taken on the role of Managing Director as she brings with her a wealth of knowledge and experience, with a keen eye for commercial and business development" said Icon's head of development Richard Hill-Whittall.

"Claire will help us to build up our digital publishing business and expand onto new platforms including PSVita and 3DS.”
