Montreal, Canada — March 3, 2020 — Canada’s premier independent game developer Behaviour™ Interactive today announced it has recruited industry veteran David Reid as the company’s first Chief Marketing Officer. Reid brings decades of experience in video game marketing and publishing to the studio as it prepares for a new era in the company’s history, spearheading its own IPs and actively expanding its work-for-hire business.
“Joining Behaviour now is a rare opportunity,” said David Reid. “The company has a tremendous pedigree built on decades of success, a global hit and leadership in asymmetric games with Dead by Daylight, and a portfolio of titles poised for even greater success in the years ahead. Behaviour has been the industry’s best kept secret for years, and I’m eager to help bring the studio the recognition it deserves.”
Reid’s industry track record includes leading Microsoft’s marketing efforts for the release of Xbox 360 as Director of Platform Marketing, growing RIFT from zero to $100 million in just nine months as Senior Vice President Publishing at Trion Worlds, and driving the critically acclaimed MMO EVE Online beyond 500,000 subscribers as CMO and Executive Producer at CCP Games.
