Blizzard co-founder Frank Pearce has been appointed to the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences board of directors, the organisation announced today.

The AIAS is currently made up of over 22,000 members, with industry leaders represented such as Sony, EA, Nintendo, Microsoft, Google, Capcom and Blizzard.

The company said that Pearce will help support its ongoing goal to advance the gaming medium.

Martin Rae, president at AIAS, said, "We're thrilled to welcome Frank Pearce to the Academy Board. "Blizzard Entertainment's games, their community and their management team epitomize success in the game business and we look forward to having Frank's valuable perspective on the Board."

Pearce added, "I've always appreciated the Academy's commitment to advancing the gaming medium and fostering creativity within our industry."

"I'm honored to be chosen for this role on the Board, and I look forward to drawing on my experiences at Blizzard to help support and contribute to the AIAS' ongoing mission."

Other industry veterans inducted into the AIAS include Google game developer advocate Seth Ladd, who was added to its board of directors earlier this year, and BioWare co-founders Dr. Ray Muzyka and Dr. Greg Zeschuk who were made part of the AIAS hall of fame.
