Syn has announced the signing of Benji Compston to Head of Business Development.
Compston will be instrumental in developing projects, from sonic branding to original music, with global teams including those based at Syn’s headquarters in Tokyo. In addition to his primary role in sales and business development, he has also contributed creatively to projects for clients including Sony, Nikon, Aoki and Square Enix.
