University Games announces Sales Director and Marketing Director Promotions thumbnail

Mark Jones, who joined University Games in 2018, has been promoted to Sales Director and Gemma Lewington, appointed in 2019, is to become Marketing Director.

The directorships are announced following a very successful 2020 for University Games, a year which saw substantial growth with the acquisition of The Lagoon Group in June. Mark and Gemma played significant roles in the integration of this brand into the core business.

Richard Wells, Managing Director of University Games, said: “We have seen great development and growth within this business over the last 5 years, with the coming together of University Games and Paul Lamond Games and more recently the acquisition of The Lagoon Group, and with this unprecedented growth and the changes we are all faced with currently, it has never been more important to have the right people alongside me on the management team.

“The hard work, dedication, initiative and support shown by both Mark and Gemma from the day they both joined University Games has been invaluable and hugely appreciated. I am delighted that they have been rewarded with these well-deserved Directorships and I look forward to seeing the further advances that this management team can achieve together.”

University Games is the name behind a prestigious portfolio of over 800 innovative games, puzzles and gifts, catering for the whole family, from preschool through to adult including family favourites such as Smart Ass, Perudo, Sort it Out, What’s Up and an impressive selection of Murder Mystery games and puzzles. The comprehensive portfolio also features a host of iconic brands such as Subbuteo, The World of David Walliams, Professor Rubik, Horrible Histories, Game of Thrones and Harry Potter.
