James Ellingford has taken the helm of software distribution company Jack of All Games.
Ellingford has taken on the role of company managing director following the resignation of Bruce Wilson. According to the company, Wilson left to "pursue other interests".
Ellingford, who formerly held the position of general and marketing manager for JOAG, has more than 15 years experience in the industry. Prior to Jack of All Games, he spent two years working in Tokyo, an experience he described as "amazing".
"To see how differently the process of conducting business can be managed, and to have the opportunity to work with the Japanese on a daily basis, is something I will never forget," he said.
Ellingford's task will be to further grow Australian operations and revenue. This year will see the release of JOAG titles such as Duke Nukem Forever, Mafia and Max Payne.
"We believe this will be a strong year for our business," Ellingford said.
