Indie Game Alliance Core Staff
Matt Holden - Executive Director
Matt founded the Alliance to give smaller independent game developers the same kind of world-class volunteer marketing organization he had been a part of with Steve Jackson Games' Men in Black program. Prior to forming the Alliance, Matt ran the marketing, manufacturing and research & development operations for a Florida electronics manufacturer, increasing the year-over-year sales by over $1 million in his first year in the position. In addition to marketing, he loves to write code and is passionate about gaming, leading him to pursue and earn his degree in Game Design & Development from Full Sail University in 2004. Matt handles much of the game consulting for our members, develops new partnerships, and sneaks off to the lab build new goodies for the Alliance every chance he gets.
