Esdevium Games have announced Steve Buckmaster as the company’s new Managing Director.
He replaces Daniel Steel, who will step down to take on a new role within Esdevium’s parent company, the Asmodee Group. Having held the role of Sales Director since 2002, Buckmaster will take on the new role with immediate effect, overseeing Esdevium’s growth within the UK and Europe.
“It is an exciting challenge for me personally and an exciting time for the company. Esdevium has progressed so much in the time I have been here and I now hope to drive that success further.” said Buckmaster.
Despite stepping down, Steel will maintain some involvement with Esdevium going forward as Chairman of the Board. Having held the position of Managing Director for the last 20 years, he has admitted to stepping down with a heavy heart, but in full support of Buckmaster.
“I’m a little sad to step aside from the day-to-day running of Esdevium which has been such a big part of my life for such a long time; but I am delighted that Steve is taking over the role. There is no better person to lead the company for what will be an exciting new chapter”.
We hope you will join us in wishing both our new and departing MDs the very best of luck in their new roles!
