In 2005, Bridgeman became MD for I-Play Macclesfield, the 3rd largest mobile games publisher in the world. He was quickly promoted to Global Director for Mobile Conversion and QA, where he managed and directed over 150 employees worldwide. After establishing I-Play International SRL in Romania, he was instrumental in executing I-Play’s offshore software development and QA facility in Bucharest, which reduced the company’s operating expenditure by 7 figures per annum. In 2007 I-Play was acquired by Oberon Media taking the headcount to over 600 employees. The deal remains the largest private-to-private M&A in this space.
