Asmodee Entertainment makes key appointment!

The gaming industry has been going through a lot recently, with lay offs at Fantasy Flight Interactive, companies who have been industry stables for decades going under and turbulant times for all.  But it isn’t all doom and gloom.  Some good news coming out of Asmodee that will hopefully have a positive effect going forwards.

From the Press Release

2019 was a very busy first year at Asmodee Entertainment, the licensing, entertainment and publishing arm of global games publisher Asmodee. With the establishment of Aconyte Books and a number of exciting deals announced including with Marvel Entertainment, Welbeck Publishing, Simon and Schuster and Escape Games Canada, a lot has happened. 

Building on the successes of 2019, Asmodee Entertainment is delighted to announce that Alexander Thieme has joined the business in the role of Licensing Manager. A twenty-year sales, licensing and marketing veteran of the games industry, Alexander joins Asmodee Entertainment from Games Workshop and will principally be focusing on European licensing opportunities across Asmodee’s many world-class game brands such as Catan, Ticket to Ride, Pandemic, Arkham Horror, Keyforge and Legend of the Five Rings. 

Based at Asmodee Entertainment’s head office in the UK, Alexander will be pushing ahead with many opportunities in the licensed publishing, collectables and other consumer products categories, working closely with Asmodee Entertainment’s LA- based SVP of Business Development Darren Kyman, who is focusing on developing Asmodee’s wealth of intellectual properties for TV, film and other media opportunities. 

Andy Jones, Head of Asmodee Entertainment said: ‘Asmodee’s mission is to bring the world Great Games and Amazing Stories. At Asmodee Entertainment we are building on the stories of the renowned Asmodee game titles that 

fans know and love as we take them into many new and exciting spaces – from novels, graphic novels and partworks through to apparel, escape rooms, TV and film! There really is so much to go at and we are delighted to welcome Alex into the team as he brings us the ability to better focus on the great partnerships we will be building across Europe’.
