Leah Wright – Williams – Bio
With 24 yrs experience in the video games industry I’ve been fortunate to have worked for some of the most successful players, high profile brands & smaller start ups from: Microprose, Vivendi Universal UK, LEGO Media UK & US, LEGOLAND UK, LoveFilm and The Game Factory US.
My background in sales, marketing, ops and general management provided excellent opportunity to open up new markets throughout EMAP, enjoy the success & challenges of taking over new divisions & establishing new start ups, as well as work with some of the best along the way…
Having relocated to the US twice, (East & West Coast) to manage new start ups I was able to realise my passion for business development, from the launch of new product ranges, to establishing new start ups and business divisions.
With a strong reputation, a global network of contacts & a deep passion for new market development, I relocated back to the UK in 2011 and established Little UpStarts USA Inc. in partnership with my long term colleague, associate & friend Nic Ashford.
Little UpStarts Inc launched in early 2012 as a US sales, business and market development agency with a Trans-Atlantic focus on new market development. We provide guidance, implementation and representation for businesses outside of the US that are looking to launch their first product or establish their first US business division.
