Michael Latham was a producer at Sega of America, best known for creating Eternal Champions.

He first gained industry experience at Rainbird Software[1], a sister company of Firebird Software, both owned by Telecomsoft[2], a division of British Telecomwhere he localized computer game software for the american market.

In 1988 he moved to Mediagenic where he served as a producer for several computer titles, including Ghostbusters II. He also worked as a producer in Tongue of the Fatman shortly before the company went bankrupt.

After that he joined Sega of America, again as a producer, where he designed and produced games like Home Alone, Greendog: The Beached Surfer Dude!, and Eternal Champions.

Some time after, Sega of America decided to restructure its internal product development groups, and Latham and his teams were placed under Omega Group headed by Scott Berfield. Latham became Omega Group director in April 1994, when Scott Berfield left Sega shortly after the restructuring was announced.
