    Drybear moves to Design; HirezGarrett assumes SMITE Community Manager role.

    Many of you know that Rory "Drybear" Newbrough joined Hi-Rez last March, after being a highly active and successful content creator within our community.


    Drybear has worn many hats at Hi-Rez, including captaining the Analyst desk at our recent Smite World Championship. But, day to day, Rory has driven Community Management for SMITE -- helping coordinate and consolidate user feedback, communicating important messages out to our Community, planning promotions and events, establishing our Social Media strategy, and generally serving as the lead advocate inside of Hi-Rez for the Community.


    As of today, Drybear is officially leaving the role of Community Manager and transitioning to a Game Designer, working directly for HirezScott, our Creative Director and Lead Designer. Rory will, of course, always be an active community member and huge advocate for the community, but in this new role, he will be actively working with SMITE Dev team to design and implement new features in the game.


    Assuming the role of SMITE Community Manager will be Garrett Martini (HiRezGarrett). Garrett is one of the founders of Tiermonster.com and has been a very active member of the SMITE Community. He has already made a big impact inside of Hi-Rez, spearheading much of the Social Media and Community Communications during the World Championship.


    Please congratulate both Drybear and HiRezGarrett on their new roles, and wish them well. They will both be incredibly busy!!


    We will be expanding our Community Management team throughout the year. So watch for more announcements, and polish those resumes if you are interested in joining the team.

    Congratulations Rory & Garrett. I hope we see some fantastic god designs come out from you, Rory - and hopefully Garrett can fill and expand your rather large shoes you've left.
