Co-Founder Richard Jolly appointed CEO of Splash Damage

After almost two decades at the helm of Splash Damage, Paul Wedgwood has taken the decision to step down. Richard Jolly, Co-Founder, Chief Marketing Officer and Creative Director on Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory, has been appointed as our new CEO.

The rest of the Executive Team is unchanged and will remain as part of the company to support Rich in his new role. Rich’s appointment marks the beginning of an exciting 2019 for us. We are continuing to work with Microsoft and The Coalition on both Gears 5 and Gears: Tactics, and are preparing to announce new titles later in the year.

“Paul and I have been close friends for almost 20 years,” said Rich, “he’s taught me a huge amount, and leaves us with a lasting legacy that ensures that employee and player happiness is central to everything we do. We all sincerely wish him the best of luck, and no matter where his next endeavour takes him, he’ll remain a part of the Splash Damage family.”

“Although we’re sad to see him leave, we’re all incredibly excited about the future of Splash Damage. In the coming year we’ll have new developments to announce, and we can’t wait to share what we’ve been up to.”
