Steamforged Games strengthens team with new head of trade marketing

Tabletop games publisher Steamforged Games has welcomed Ross Thompson as head of trade marketing to support its growing offering of board, card, miniatures and role playing games.

Ross (pictured) joins the company from USAOPOLY where he worked with numerous pop culture brands, communities, influencers and internal teams with promote The Op’s games.

He has worked with major licences from Disney and Marvel, as well as brands including Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and companies such as IDW Games and CMON.

“We’re looking to take our trade relationships to the next level,” explained Toby Davies, commercial director at Steamforged Games. “As a seasoned and well-connected professional with a background in big tabletop brands, Ross is the perfect person to help make that happen.

“It’s a primary aim at Steamforged Games to ensure we’re supporting retailers and distributors worldwide, and bringing Ross on board will help us go above and beyond to fulfil that commitment. I know I speak for everyone at SFG when I say we can’t wait to see what he brings to the table.”

Ross – who has joined the company alongside four new recruits in production and games development – added: “It’s great to be joining Steamforged at this stage, with so much achieved and so much potential still to be realised. If their releases and campaigns in the last year alone are anything to go by, it’s safe to say there are some exciting times ahead.

“With games like Godtear and Epic Encounters to shout about – and no doubt some upcoming retail releases for their highly successful Kickstarter games – I can’t wait to start spreading the word to retailers around the world.”
