Former Pedestrian journalist to oversee Asia Pacific content creation for Gamurs

Technology journalist Alex Walker has been named Asia Pacific vice president of content for gaming business Gamurs Group.

In the newly-created role, the former Pedestrian staffer will oversee content creation for Gamurs-owned titles across the region.

Walker, who has a background in esports and gaming journalism, has spent the past six years at Allure Media and Nine’s Pedestrian Group where he has been editor of Kotaku Australia since August 2016.

Gamurs founder and chief executive Riah Chikhani said: “Alex has a passion and enthusiasm for our brand and the content Gamurs creates. To have him join during a period of immense growth only further complements and strengthens our market-leading position in the arena of gaming, esports and entertainment.”

Walker added: “The company shares my vision for the potential for esports and the broader video game market, and I’m excited to see what we can build together.”

Walker, who takes up the new role next month, will report to Gamurs Texas-based chief content officer Kevin Morris.
