Former PR guy at distributor Turn Left and publisher THQ, Drew Taylor has stepped into the internal PR manager position at Disney Interactive Games.
Taylor's responsibilities include managing the PR and publicity for Disney Interactive Games across Australia and New Zealand, a role that encompasses Disney Infinity, core titles, mobile games and community management.
It's a smooth segue for Taylor, who managed the PR for the launch of Disney Infinity while at Turn Left last year.
"After being involved in the launch and roll-out of the platform last year, having the opportunity to continue managing the PR and publicity is very exciting," he says.
"Disney Infinity has already been enormously successful—with its combination of collectible physical toys and creative, virtual play—and this year will see the platform significantly expand and develop, taking the creative potential to a whole new level."
"Disney is a pop-culture, family entertainment powerhouse; a company founded on words such as ‘dream’, ‘inspire’ and ‘create’. And as someone who believes strongly in these ideas—ideas found at the heart of the Disney Infinity platform—the opportunity to work at Disney within the Interactive Games team represents a pinnacle moment in my professional career."
