Activision Blizzard appoints new European managing director

In a hasty attempt to replace outgoing European higher-up Joerg Trouvain, Activision Blizzard has announced that it's found a replacement for the briefly open executive position -- the equally awesomely-named Thibaud de Saint-Quentin will be taking over as the company's European senior vice president and managing director of publishing come next Monday. Strangely enough, Saint-Quentin's auspicious résumé doesn't include any gaming industry experience -- he's actually moving to the job following 20 years of serving as vice president for Kraft Foods' division of coffee, a beverage we're currently enjoying. Damn, this guy's good.
