Ny chef för Sony Interactive Entertainment

Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) meddelar idag att John (Tsuyoshi) Kodera kommer kliva av som chef för avdelningen den 1 april för att istället bli deputy president för just Sony Interactive Entertainment (samma roll han hade fram till oktober 2017) där han ska arbeta för att skapa innovativa upplevelser. Kodera själv kommenterar:

"I have been discussing with Yoshida-san the need to drive SIE to the next phase in our rapidly changing business environment. As a result, we have concluded that the best direction is for me to spearhead the network area to continue creating and innovative services and experiences, where competition continues to intensify with many new players joining the business."

Koderas ersättare blir Jim Ryan som själv varit deputy president för SIE sedan januari 2018, och han kommer alltså svara direkt under Sonys högste boss Kenchiro Yoshida. Såhär säger Yoshida om utnämningen:

"Jim Ryan has been long committed to the growth of the Playstation business for the last 25 years. I believe that this new structure - where Jim will manage SIE's overall organisation and operations, and which will allow John to focus on the key mission to further develop PSN that has grown into an immensely large platform will enable SIE to accelerate its innovation and evolution even further."

Ryan själv hade också några väl valda ord inför denna ära:

"It's a huge honour to be asked to take on the role of President and CEO of SIE. I've seen the Playstation business grow and change massively since the early days and I hope to put that experience to good use in reinforcing the foundations of the game and network service business. Working with John and the SIE team around the world, I am committed to strengthening relations with our business partners and to continuing to provide the ultimate interactive entertainment experiences that make Playstation the best place to play."
