Thibaud de Saint-Quentin will become Activision Blizzard’s new senior vice president and managing director of European publishing, after previously serving as vice president of Kraft Food’s European coffee business. Joining the company on March 9th, de Saint-Quentin will be based in Activision’s UK headquarters and report to chief customer officer Brian Hodous. During his 20 years at Kraft Foods, de Saint-Quentin also held the positions of marketing director of the company’s French coffee division and vice president of strategy and business development for cheese and grocery across Europe. He holds a master’s degree Ecole Superiere des Sciences Economiques et Commerciales (ESSEC) in Paris. Although he has no experience in the video games industry, de Saint-Quentin will oversee Activision Blizzard’s European strategy and long term growth initiatives, including key European accounts, channel management, category strategies and “brand activation activities”. "I'm very proud to take up this new role at Activision Blizzard," said de Saint-Quentin. "The gaming industry and Activision Blizzard in particular is an incredibly exciting business to be a part of and I'm looking forward to joining the team and leading Europe forward to the next level of growth." Previous incumbent Joerg Trouvain will be returning to Switzerland, after leaving both Activision Blizzard and the video games industry. "During his tenure with the company, we made substantial progress in strengthening our business and have a solid foundation upon which to continue our success. We thank him for his contributions and wish him well in the future," said Hodous.
