Apple poaching gaming PR execs from Nintendo, Activision?

updated 04:35 pm EDT, Fri April 8, 2011

Rob Saunders and Nick Grange said to be new hires

Apple is reportedly hiring several PR executives from several gaming companies, including Nintendo and Activision. Unnamed sources have told MCV that Rob Saunders, Nintendo UK's former head of PR, departed his position to fill a newly created position at Apple. The executive is said to be coming on board to work with PR for gaming content on the iOS platform.

Aside from Saunders, Apple allegedly convinced Nick Grange, Activision Europe's PR director, to jump ship and join the iOS team. The sources claim Grange will be focusing on iPad hardware, rather than the entire iOS gaming platform.

Apple has yet to confirm either of the new hires.
