“Helping the team kick some significant goals and making some great friends along the way has made my time at DTT a highly rewarding and enjoyable experience, but this new challenge was something I couldn’t ignore,” said Stephen.

“With studios in Shanghai, Hong Kong and now Manilla, PixelBox is poised to become a serious player in the region, and I’m excited to be joining my good friend and colleague Chris Thorp to help maximise this potential and take PixelBox to the next level,” added Stephen.

“I’ve known Stephen for a number of years now and have a great deal of admiration and respect for his passion, drive and business acumen.

“Not to mention the extensive networks he’s created and nurtured throughout Asia and beyond. We’ve often talked about working together when the time is right and that time is now,” said Chris.
