Clarke comes on board as senior marketing director having previously worked at Naturalmotion as head of global publishing and global head of product marketing and platforms at strategy specialist Plarium. Prior to Naturalmotion, he worked at EA in the firms mobile publishing arm.
Meanwhile, Zynga alum Steven Tarry has been hired as head of user acquisition. He worked in this area before at Naturalmotion, and more recently, Zynga.
The third appointment is Multiplay veteran Wilson who joins as head of video and live production. Wilson worked at Multiplay for eight years growing the outfit's broadcast and production division. He worked on collaborations with Activision, EA, Microsoft, Ubisoft and - fittingly - Jagex during this time.
