Ubisoft's Executive Director in Charge of Worldwide Studios, Christine Burgess-Quémard has been named a 2018 Women in Games inductee for her contributions to and achievements within the European game industry.

[2018-09-12] Women in Games Hall of Fame Honors Ubisoft's Christine Burgess-Quémard - THUMBNAIL

Since 2000, Burgess-Quémard has served as Executive Director in charge of Worldwide Studios. Soon after joining Ubisoft in 1987, she was entrusted with the task of opening Ubisoft's first business unit in the United States. She spent four years building and developing the San Francisco branch of the company before moving on to head the business unit in the United Kingdom. In 1997, Burgess-Quémard returned to Paris to become International Sales Director, before eventually becoming Executive Director of Ubisoft's Worldwide Studios – a role where she defines and implements the principles and strategies that guide all of Ubisoft's production studios around the globe. Then, in 2006, Burgess-Quémard was named among the top 100 most influential women in the industry by NextGen.Biz.

"I am really touched and proud to receive this award, and I am thankful to everyone who participated," Burgess-Quémard said. "I would like to share it with all my women colleagues at Ubisoft. I am hopeful that all of us can help inspire young women to participate in our industry, and more specifically, to join us at Ubisoft!"
