“I’ve known Ed for many years and worked closely with him from 2007-2016. Ed works incredibly hard for his clients and has a great team of people working with him at Fog Studios. He knows the video game industry from every angle and because of this knowledge and depth of experience he is able to walk the line of pushing hard for the best deal he can get for his development clients while also knowing what is important to the other party. Over the course of many negotiations Ed became a person whose opinion and insight I sought out about things unrelated to our own business together. I hope I have many more opportunities to work with Ed in the future.”-Bill Anker, VP Business Development & Licensing, D3Publisher
