THQ hires on a new vice president, Ron Moravek.
THQ today named former Relic Entertainment co-founder Ron Moravek as its new executive vice president of production, reporting directly to THQ president Jason Rubin.
Moravek worked previously as chief operating officer of Relic throughout the period of its sale to THQ in 2004 and served as the studio's general manager until 2006. He also worked as vice president and chief operating officer of Electronic Arts Canada and co-founded a number of software companies.
"Ron is an exceptional development executive with unique perspective on the industry from both a creative and business point of view," said THQ president Jason Rubin in a prepared statement. "His entrepreneurial experience as well as his ability to drive dynamic teams is a great fit for our strategic objectives. Additionally, Ron's experience building high-quality products will help us continue to deliver great games and build upon our foundation to innovate digitally in the future."
Earlier in the year THQ executive vice president Danny Bilson stepped down from his position, and was later replaced by Naughty Dog co-founder Jason Rubin. The studio's senior vice president of "core games", Dave Davis, also left the company.
