Simon Watch '04: Jeffery spotted at Hornby 20 Aug, 2004, 18:49 / 6 comments

According to this story at Times Online, ex-LucasArts president Simon Jeffery has got himself a new job as marketing director at hobbyist/model company Hornby, after a year or so "spending time with family."

While president of LucasArts Simon, as many of you know, tried to breathe life back into many of LucasArts' old franchises like Full Throttle, Sam & Max, and the Secret Weapons of the Luftwaffe series, but sadly was rarely successful, causing him to leave the company around a year ago. We wish him good luck etc at his new gig, and expect numerous free model kits to tinker with in exchange for saying so.

    If Hornby don't make a "number 9" gift set model railway I will be exceedingly upset with Mr. Jeffrey.
