Games firm set to create jobs
A LEADING international video games publisher is creating jobs after moving to an office development in Brockhampton.
Majesco Entertainment, whose best-selling games include Zumba Fitness and Cooking Mama, has headquarters in Edison, New Jersey, as well as offices in San Francisco, California and Foxboro, Massachusetts.
The company’s European team, which was previously based in Bristol, has signed a three-year lease for the Upper Granary suite at Brockhampton, near Bromyard. The European team oversees the PR, sales, marketing and distribution of the company’s video games across all platforms, including Nintendo, Microsoft and Sony.
Jason Dutton, managing director international, said: “As a games company we needed an environment that is self-contained and practical for our day-to-day operations but also fun to work in. Our new office provides us with that and more – high spec facilities within a modern, relaxed and enjoyable rural environment.
“The flexible space has allowed us to create a functional boardroom and demonstration space to compliment the administrative and executive areas.
“We have recently recruited an office manager/assistant to the managing director and will be looking to take on more people to assist with our European operations throughout the year.”
