Lightseekers team PlayFusion is building out its US operations

PlayFusion, the team behind multi-media trading card games Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Champions and Lightseekers is growing its North American team.

The move has come as demand for its tech-infused take on the traditional game play has continued to pick up steam globally and ahead of the next Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Champions booster, Onslaught is released in November this year.

As part of the firm’s growth, Jason Brenner has been promoted to the role of VP sales and marketing for North America and will now oversee day to day operations for the region. Brenner joined PlayFusion as head of North American sales earlier this year.

Meanwhile, Richard Dracass will be the North American retail manager, responsible for managing retailer relationships as well as managing PlayFusion’s team of eight field reps. He has worked for an array of game industry companies including Wizards of the Coast, Upper Deck and Passport Games Studios.

Elsewhere, Steve DeVries is joining the company as North American marketing manager, focusing on all marketing aspects of the physical game and related activities, while Tayson Turner has been hired as North American organised play coordinator. Turner’s job will be focused on rolling out the company’s OP programmes in the US and Canada.
