Games Partnership Manager Leaves Apple
10:53 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

IMG has learned that Mike Donges, one of two remaining Apple Games Partnership Managers, has left Apple. Acting as a liaison between Apple and game publishers and developers, Donges managed various accounts including developer relations with Graphic Simulations, id Software, and Blizzard Entertainment. Donges' departure follows a long string of Games Partnership Managers who have left, including Jim Black, who now works at NVIDIA, and Kathy Tafel (who remains at Apple but is not involved in games).

As you might expect, a new job listing has now appeared on Apple's web site. Here's a brief description of the position:

The Games Partnership Manager, reporting into the Consumer & Games team in Apple's Worldwide Developer Relations Group, is responsible for
developing and maintaining strong relationships with key, strategic games developers. You will work both independently and in close collaboration with WW Product Marketing, WW Markets, Technology Partnership Management, Engineering, and Senior Management to effectively deliver Apple's Mac OS X and product messages to developers and to champion developer needs, issues, and opportunities within Apple.
If you're interested in the position, check out Apple's web site.

In closing, we'd like to wish Mike Donges the best of luck in his new endeavours, whatever they may be. I was lucky enough to have met Donges at various Macworld Expo's during his tenure and I can say that Apple has lost a champion of Mac gaming. Best of luck Mike!
