Eidos head honcho Jane Cavanagh has scored an Order Of The British Empire (OBE) in the 2007 New Year honours list. Jane Cavanagh founded SCi Entertainment Group in 1988 and is one of the most experienced executives in the games industry. As founder of SCi, Jane owned 100% of SCi until its flotation in 1996.

Following the acquisition of Eidos in May 2005 after a bidding war with Bono-helmed equity firm Elevation Partners, SCi achieved its objective of successfully launching all major products planned for the 2006 financial year including Tomb Raider Legend, which exceeded all budget expectations.

In 2006, the group solidified its position as a global leader in video-game publishing with the announcement of a string of new products planned for 2007 - including Tomb Raider Anniversary - and a successful marriage with Warner Bros which brings onboard 11 licensing deals and a primary distribution deal across the United States.

The Most Excellent Order of the British Empire is a British order of chivalry established on 4 June 1917 by King George V. The Order includes five classes in civil and military divisions; in decreasing order of seniority.
