$33 Million Video Game Account is Shopping Around Project
Steve’s breakdown: Hey guys, this lead comes from my personal network and is confidential and not in any of the trades. By the way, you can be part of my personal network so if you have anything juicy to share, there are perks with “membership”.
So the Matt Jarvis, CEO of 72andSunny / Eric Hirshberg, ex-CEO at Activision relationship is done and the client is now shopping around a project for Call of Duty.
To be more specific, Tim Ellis, the EVP & CMO of Activision is shopping around a project. He can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
And while you’re at it, think about asking Tim about the Guitar Hero and Destiny franchises because we suspect they will be shopping around projects for those games very soon!! IN FACT, we think the entire account will go up for review so JUMP!!
