TCGplayer has hired game industry veteran Scott Elliott as Vice President of Sales. Elliott will help drive growth of TCGplayer Pro, the company’s new eCommerce service for brick and mortar hobby game retailers.  TCGplayer Pro was launched earlier this year (see “TCGplayer Takes on Crystal Commerce”).

Elliott was previously Vice President of Gen Con LLC, the largest tabletop show in the U.S. ("Gen Con Releases Attendance Figures”), from December 2013 until September 2017.  Prior to that he was VP Sales & Marketing for Gen Con from December 2011 – December 2013 and Senior Director Sales at Gen Con from April 2009 to December 2011.  He also served as Manager – Entertainment Sales and Organized Play Program Manager at Upper Deck. He has also been CEO of Jade Dragon Studios, a design company, since 2012.

“I’m excited to help the TCGplayer team build solid support structures that will empower businesses to grow and become more successful,” Elliott said in the announcement.  “The TCGplayer network’s strength comes from the grassroots: the players, store owners and employees who invest their time and financial resources in the development of communities.  Chedy [Hampson] has assembled an incredible group of people who care about their customers, and I am privileged to become part of the team.”
