The Client:

Award winning international games company 505 Games is known for publishing and co-developing innovative titles across console, mobile and VR, including ABZU, ADR1FT, Terraria, Brothers, PayDay and Sniper Elite. Their initial successes were Cooking Mama and Zumba Fitness and placed this 10-year old company firmly as one of the leaders in the international games publisher list.

The Unique Challenge:

We have been hired for both senior level marketing searches and executive coaching for both LA and UK teams. Two very distinct functions that require deep understanding to create the growth a client like 505 seek.

In Headhunting:

505’s culture is unlike any other games company we’ve worked with, and that’s a good thing. 505 expects ownership and an entrepreneurial mindset to deliver the best product and the best go-to market strategies. It’s our task to analyze a talent’s ability to be both a technical fit and a cultural fit for the long-term 505 family.

In Coaching:

Every company leadership team needs a coaching partner to identify opportunities for development and growth. It was a pleasure to serve the senior management team.
