Brett Walton created VGChartz in the summer of 2006 as a way of collating all publicly available videogame sales data into one place. After reading engineering at Cambridge University, Brett landed a job at McLaren Racing in 2006 becoming part of the design team behind the World Championship winning MP4-23A car of 2008. During his time at Cambridge and McLaren, Brett created and developed VGChartz - growing the site from a few hundred hits per week back in 2006 to over 2.5 million hits per week in 2010. Two main factors are to thank for this growth - the move from simply collating public data in the early days to carrying out original and groundbreaking sales research today, and the addition of website features such as the forum, game database, news and social networking. In February 2009 Brett left his job at McLaren to become full-time CEO of VGChartz Ltd and in May 2010 Brett launched the VGChartz Network.
