Warner appoints Jeff Junge to oversee digital games business
Newly-created role will combine management of online games and digital platforms
Warner Bros has announced that it has appointed its former senior VP for business management, Jeff Junge, to a newly-created role of senior VP for online games and digital games platforms.
In his new role Junge will oversee the publisher's digital games business, including the Turbine and TT Games studios, and report to both Martin Tremblay (president of WBIE) and Thomas Gewecke (president of Warner Bros Digital Distribution).
"Jeff has orchestrated numerous high profile acquisitions and has a deep understanding of digital platforms and games, which are key priorities for the Studio," said Kevin Tsujihara, president of the Warner Bros Home Entertainment Group. "This newly-created position reflects the natural evolution of Jeff’s role in the organisation as we further expand our digital presence in the games space."
Prior to his new job, Junge was instrumental in the acquisition of Rocksteady Studios, former Midway Games development studios, and also led the company's investment into the OnLive partnership.
