Today, Ubisoft announced that Fawzi Mesmar, a veteran Game Designer with more than 18 years of experience, is being appointed as the newest Vice President of Editorial.
Based in Sweden, Fawzi will report directly to Ubisoft’s Chief Creative Officer Igor Manceau. As a member of Ubisoft’s Editorial department, he will work closely with Ubisoft’s worldwide production teams to shape the creative direction of Ubisoft’s vast portfolio of games and franchises.
