THQ has appointed a new VP of business development for continued relationship-building between the publisher and developers.
Timothy Campbell will maintain and build partnerships with independent development teams and help expand THQ’s internal studio system.
Campbell has been with THQ since 2004, when he signed on as director of business development. He helped spearhead the acquisitions of Kaos Studios and Vigil Games, as well as the acquisition of the Stuntman franchise from Atari earlier this year. He’s also behind the publishing agreement for Gas-Powered Games’ upcoming RTS, Supreme Commander.
Gary Rosenfeld, senior VP of business development said, “In his new role, Tim will have the opportunity to apply [his] skills on a worldwide level as THQ continues to seek publishing opportunities with top external development teams across all next generation platforms and the PC."
Prior to THQ, Campbell held business development positions at Atari and Sammy Studios, in addition to licensing positions at Infogrames.
