Emily is a great fit for gaming native agency, Diva, having clocked up over 20 years of experience in communications for videogames. Emily earned her spurs as QA tester many years ago and has held international PR roles at 2K, Square Enix and the Pokémon Company International.

In recent years Emily has worked as a freelance consultant, balancing parental responsibilities with numerous clients, including BAFTA, Wellcome and McLaren Technologies, and boutique PR Agency, Renaissance. Emily is well connected within the gaming sector, having also served as a Chair and Trustee for GamesAid. She’s also good company, so will slot right into Diva’s Good Company brand values!

Suzy Barnes commented: “We’re over the moon that Emily has joined the team at Diva and are looking forward to the deep insight she will bring, from working at the heart of games communications for so many years. She is the perfect person to head up our integrated comms offering, dovetailing into our strategic and creative briefs to create a cohesive end-to-end service for our clients.

“Communications is an obvious natural addition to our agency’s services and who better than a highly respected industry veteran like Emily to head that up.”

Emily Britt added: “It’s hard to lean out of the games industry - despite several years of mumming it’s always drawn me back. In Diva perhaps I’ve found an agency with a people first attitude which will enable me to lean back in enough to do some great and exciting work with the most creative set of people in the sector.”

Emily is the fourth executive hire for Diva Agency in recent months, further strengthening the agency's position as the UK’s leading games specialist creative agency. Emily's appointment follows the hiring of James Whatley as Chief Strategy Officer (from Digitas), Stuart O’Neill as Executive Creative Director (from Tribal DDB) and David Wall as Client Services Director (from Havas).
