Every Monday, mobilegamer.biz brings you the latest on who’s moving where.
This week, the latest addition to PlayStation Mobile’s growing dream team is Uyen Uyen Ton Nu, who has left Super Evil Megacorp to become senior director and head of mobile marketing at PlayStation.
Announcing the move on LinkedIn, she said of her time at Super Evil Megacorp: “I had the amazing opportunity to work alongside some of the most talented veteran game makers in the industry. Incredibly proud of the work we put in building Vainglory and Catalyst Black alongside our passionate community.”
And she said of her new role: “I have joined Sony PlayStation to head the mobile marketing group. Thrilled to be building alongside some of the best in business. Though much is under wraps, and will be for some time; I am looking forward to sharing more in the future.”
PlayStation continues to build quite a team for its push into mobile. Our report from last week has the latest details.
