"Making great games is our business; attracting and celebrating great people to make them is our lifeblood."
Richard Blenkinsop is the Managing Director at Ubisoft Reflections and Ubisoft Leamington.
Joining the videogames industry in 1999, Richard has held senior production positions at several games companies. In 2014, he became the Associate Managing Director at Reflections; a role that enabled him to build on the company's 30-year legacy of quality, resilience and expertise. A people leader, Richard became the Managing Director of the studio in 2016 (as well as the newly acquired Ubisoft Leamington studio the following year) and aims to cement the reputations of the two studios, growing their contribution to the games industry.
But as Richard says himself; "...my core value is people - its not about what I say, but what they say!"
