So skylanders is looking for a new marketing head. I guess once this person starts their job will be marketing Skylanders 5.

Mustve been an unexpected quitting or firing .
it's a bit late in the year with only 6 months before the next game to be looking for someone for a major position like this.

getting someone new and excited about the franchise can only be a good thing though.

Interesting, I feel that either she quit or was fired for something that activision possibly didn't like. As for them trying to get a new marketing head I'm sure someone will fill the position in no time.

Maybe she was fired because of bad Kaos Trap and Light/Dark expansion pack problems? Just a wild theory. Hopefully the new person won't make the same mistakes.

Again, that wasn't Activision's fault. Could they have been more upfront somewhere about what was causing the delays? Maybe. But the lack of stock wasn't their fault. It's pretty obvious it was the dock workers strike, since stock started hitting stores a few weeks after the strike was over.

i think that after the wave 4 us shunning, kaos trap fiasco, and the elsusive light and dark packs, they got fired.

The person that held this position is Eneida Mejia. She is now listed as a "Account Supervisor at Deutsch LA." Deutsch LA had a chairman change the same month she was hired according to Wiki. It's more likely that she had a few connections and was offered a better job than her being incompetent. Her work history seems pretty solid with nothing that really screams red flags. https://www.linkedin.com/pub/eneida-mejia/5/25b/277

So please let's not speculate and assume the worse. Anyone who is a little curious can do some research and they will most likely come to fair conclusion as to what most likely had happened. There is no need to spread rumor and gossip based on the bad stuff we've experienced with Trap Team.

I doubt a message board will do that, but I do think some new blood is a good idea at this point. I think they should keep on keeping on on that trend (to quote Snagglescale a bit).

No, but there are chances that fans will go and harass the woman for questions about what she knows.

You realize that they're looking for experienced individuals, not random fans who just want to know what Sky 5 is going to be about, don't know how to manage marketing, and just leave right away.

Yes, this is what they expect you to have:
Quote: Job Description
· Bachelors Degree.

· Must have experience of marketing
kid directed product.

· 5+ years experience in marketing
high profile brands or agency account management.

· Experience in TV, Video, Online and
Social Advertising required.


Besides, Skylanders is one of, if not the most important franchise to them so they are really looking for the best of the best.

Plus have worked in the AAA game industry before is very much implied. And since the forum is made up mostly of fans and LPers we can say that probably no one does(in the marketing area that is).

Well that's a very short list of folks. I guess they should just go and contact the 10 or 20 people that fit this narrow list of requirements after making it official that they are not discriminating anyone. smilie

i dont think we'll be hearing any sky 5 news till this job is filled for a decent amount of time. Im pretty sure they need a marketing manager to reveal a game.

They wouldn't throw the burden of revealing the new game on someone that quickly...

They would have a team of people for them that probably have alot organised but its more appropriate for these jobs that the person who is going to be in charge to at least oversee and advise on the start of marketing. Coz thats their job. As why they need them to be experienced. They dont give people a month to get comfortable in jobs like these.

Was it not the TFB staff that revealed TT? If so this means absolutely nothing as VV would be able to reveal it. Also you're forgetting that Activison is revealing a new supposed Guitar Hero game TODAY.
