THQ announced the launch of THQ Partners, providing select developers and publishers access to THQ’s global retail and online publishing network.

With offices in North America, Europe and Asia Pacific, THQ’s industry leading global publishing operation reaches all major video game territories worldwide. THQ has consistently been recognized as a best-in-class vendor by retailers around the world.

THQ Partners will be led by Tim Walsh, who brings extensive experience in global publishing and online distribution to the position. “I’m extremely pleased to join THQ and launch THQ Partners,” said Tim Walsh, Vice President, THQ Partners. “I’m looking forward to working with a select number of world-class developers and publishers to distribute their great games through our global network.”

“THQ Partners is charged with maximizing the efficiencies of our global distribution network by enhancing our product offerings with quality games from developers and publishers who don’t have the benefit of our extensive retail and online sales operations,” said Ian Curran, Executive Vice President, THQ Global Publishing.

Tim Walsh has more than 20 years of publishing experience, spanning interactive entertainment, in-game advertising and music. Most recently, he served as Executive Vice President of Publisher Relations for IGA Worldwide.
