Specialist games service company Babel has strengthened its management team by bringing in Stephen Foy as Head of PC/Console QA and Adam Chapman as Audio Product Manager.

The move continues Babel's strategy to deliver a range of quality services to its customers on a global basis. The company recently opened its first office in North America and last month hired games veteran Keith Russell as Sales and Marketing Director.

Stephen Foy is heading a team of more than 30 experienced testers and will be working closely with Babel's Quality department to provide integrated services across all major platforms in more than 25 languages. Foy was previously at Epic where his consumer website clients included Orange, Sun Microsystems, British Airways and the Foreign & Commonwealth Office.

Adam Chapman is responsible for strengthening presence and process in Babel's audio service. He is the dedicated point of contact for Babel's audio clients and will oversee original production, localisation and Babel's pan-European studio network. He was previously at SDL International where he managed their global audio service and brings to the company several years of experience in localisation and audio production for games.

"These two guys are quality hires and underscores our commitment to giving our clients top notch service, unbeatable quality and even faster project turnarounds," said Algy Williams, Managing Director at Babel.

Babel now has offices in Brighton, New Delhi and San Diego. The company employs 140 people worldwide.
