Toby Davies, previously head of sales (Global Distribution and Partners) at Games Workshop, has taken up his post as commercial director at tabletop games developer and retailer, Steamforged Games (SFG).

Before joining SFG, Toby spent three years at Games Workshop and seven years at Trunki. In both roles, Toby forged new distribution channels and handled distributor and retailer relations on a global scale.

In his role as commercial director for SFG, Toby will join the board alongside Ian Livingstone CBE, co-founder of Games Workshop.

“I’m thrilled to be joining at such an exciting time for the business” said Toby. “We’ve got an excellent pipeline of products planned over the next few years with a great mix of IP, price points and channels of distribution to go after.”

Toby’s new post at SFG comes following the company’s success developing tabletop versions of popular video games such as Horizon Zero DawnTM, Resident Evil II and Ni no Kuni II, in addition to original tabletop miniature games such as Godtear and Guild Ball.

SFG co-founder and CEO, Rich Loxam, said: “It’s fantastic to have such an experienced person joining the team. Toby is a key part of our growth strategy and product lines going forward.”

One such product line includes the recently-announced Animal Adventures Kickstarter campaign, Secrets of Gullet Cove, which reached its funding goal within twenty minutes of its launch on January 28th 2020.
