The Eurogamer Staff was founded in September 1999 and has been covering video games ever since. The site began life with a PC focus and a keen interest in the competitive FPS scene of the time, but over the years it has grown to cover every aspect of gaming - PC, console, indie, board games and anything else that the team and the site's readers find interesting.

Eurogamer Editorial


Oli Welsh


Oli became editor of in 2014, having worked as deputy editor since early 2012. He has been voted the best-dressed man in video games by his colleagues (who, to be fair, mostly dress like thugs and lumberjacks).

Wesley Yin-Poole

Deputy Editor,

Wesley is Eurogamer's news editor and watches over our news department. He's passionate about news journalism and under his guidance news (stop saying 'news') has become one of Eurogamer's greatest strengths. He's also a massive fighting game fan - if you really want to annoy him, try calling then "beat-'em-ups" within his earshot...


Martin Robinson

Feature and Reviews Editor,

As features and reviews editor, Martin is responsible for commissioning, editing and writing much of Eurogamer's long-form content in collaboration with our staff of full-time writers and freelance contributors. He loves cars so much it hurts (them and him).


Robert Purchese

Senior Staff Writer,

Rob - better known to everyone as Bertie - has risen from admin work to nenior staff writer in his many years at Eurogamer. These days he largely reports on independent game development - Kickstarter in particular.


Christian Donlan

Associate Editor,

Christian contributed to Eurogamer on a freelance basis for four years before we realised we should probably hire him because he's really talented and popular. He also writes a TV show in his spare time.


Richard Leadbetter

Technology editor,

Rich has spent 20 years writing about games, mainly for magazines the youngsters of today haven't even heard of. Today he writes for Eurogamer about things too technical for the rest of us to understand and uses words like "hypervisor" in a serious context.


Tom Phillips

Deputy News Editor,

Tom grew up somewhere in the top-right of England, but when we offered him the chance to make pictures and videos and put them on the internet and stuff he immediately fled south to join us. Suspicious beard.


Jeffrey Matulef

US News Editor,

US-based Jeffrey joined Eurogamer in 2012 to help cover the world of gaming while we're asleep or drunk. He has a predilection for cool indie stuff and has brilliant facial hair.


John Bedford

Guides Editor,

John is Eurogamer's Guides Editor, responsible for walkthroughs, tips, buyer's guides and other resources. He also pretty much cheats at Hearthstone.

Video team


Ian Higton

YouTube Editor,

Ian joined Eurogamer at the end of 2012 to head up our YouTube channel, so if you find yourself watching gameplay videos, interviews or live streams on Eurogamer, that's probably Ian talking over the top or pratting around in front of the camera with his easy smile and questionable bead necklace. Head over to the Eurogamer YouTube channel to follow his every move.


Simon Parkin, Dan Whitehead, Rich Stanton, Damien McFerran, Thomas Morgan, David Bierton, Chris Schilling, Rob Fahey, Martin Davies, Joao Diniz Sanches, John Teti, Matt Edwards, Paul Dean, Martyn Carroll, Alec Meer, Rich Cobbett, Cara Ellison, Stace Harman.



Mark Kennedy

Technical Director

Mark's been here through several iterations of the website and wrote most of the code that makes it buzz and whirr. He also fights off internet terrorists when they try and take us down like in Die Hard 4.


Craig Munro

Senior Developer

Craig does the same sort of thing as Mark, but is more handsome. He also emails us occasionally trying to convince us to give blood, which is very noble, although his method of collecting it is a bit suspicious.


Simon Downes


Simon eats. A lot. No, seriously, really a lot. He also claims to work on top secret projects which he can't talk to the rest of us about because we don't have the right level of security clearance. But we all know he spends most of his time typing "cheeseburger" into Google image search.


Geoff Wright

Systems Manager

If Mark fights off internet terrorists, Geoff is the one who puts in the final boot. He ensures our sites don't fall off the internet. He only uses computers via terminal, and refuses to acknowledge GUIs exist.



Tom Champion

Features Manager, Gamer Events

Tom, or 'Tom C' as he's affectionately but unimaginatively known, joined Eurogamer in May 2009 to help with the Eurogamer Expo, these days known as EGX London. He was so good at peeling Blu-Tack off the walls that we let him stay. These days he works on all of Gamer Network's growing stable of events - EGX London, EGX Rezzed and GameHorizon.


David Lilley

Managing Director, Gamer Events

David has been in the games industry for two decades now. He's responsible for the events side of the Gamer Network business, booking the games and making sure we all get on the bus at the end of the EGX events, etc.

Business and Sales


Dan Robinson

Sales director,

Dan joined Eurogamer in 2006 and is responsible for the network's advertising. He likes to eat crisps while playing FIFA, which is not popular.


Ben Whitmore

Ad Trafficker,

Ben joined Eurogamer in 2011 and is responsible for making sure all the adverts that pay for our kids' education go up on the site without exploding the internet.


Rupert Loman

Founder and CEO

Rupert is the boss and founder of Gamer Network, and is responsible for the day-to-day running of the company and making long-term plans for our expansion, such as putting hose-pipes in our mouths and turning the tap on really quickly.

Notable alumni


Tom Bramwell

Deputy editor, Editor, Editor-in-chief, 2000-2014

Tom edited Eurogamer since the beginning of 2008 and worked on the site since 2000, leaving in 2014 to try a new career down t' mines. He lives on the south coast of England with his family and his collection of pristine Super Nintendo RPGs. (Mint condition Final Fantasy 3 ZOMG.)


Ellie Gibson

Associate Features Editor,

Ellie previously edited our sister site GamesIndustry International, but found the dress code restrictive and returned to Eurogamer in January 2008. Ellie edits our long-term investigations and also dabbles in reviews and features herself from time to time - usually if they involve animals fighting or having it off. Ellie left to pursue a career in the circus.
