EA, Microsoft marketing vet joins Ubisoft UK

Remember when you were poring over the credits section of the Forza Motorsport manual and saw, under "Special Thanks," the name Murray Pannell? (Sorry, we had to try.) Well, Mr. Pannell has left the building -- the Microsoft building. His destination: Ubisoft UK, where he'll head up a trifecta of PR, brand management and digital marketing. We've heard his new nickname will be "Triforce." (Or maybe it was "Noob.")

Prior to his time as group product manager for Xbox 360 and Games For Windows at MS UK, Pannell marketed the heck out of EA releases in jolly ol' England, most notably Peter Molyneux's Black & White. Now he's gone beyond good and evil.
