Sony bigwig packs it in
After 15 years with the company, Phil Harrison will resign from his position as President of Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios at the end of this month.
Things are being kept quiet about what Phil will be up to in the future however, he did say some rather nice things about Sony and the impact it has made on his life.
"The past 15 years at Sony Computer Entertainment has been the defining journey of my life so far. I am grateful to all the PlayStation family for its incredible support, guidance and friendship. It has been a privilege to serve as part of the team and be inspired by them on a daily basis. I am so proud of everything PlayStation has achieved and will continue to support its future in every way I can."
Although no reason has been given for Mr Harrison’s departure, his shoes won’t be empty for long. Kazuo Hirai, Chief Executive of Sony’s game operations, will be stepping up to the plate immediately.
Phil Harrison first worked for Sony in 1992 and new president on the block, Hirai, made sure everyone knew how much Phil had done for the company.
“As one of the founding members of SCE, Phil played a key role in the development and growth of the PlayStation business and our industry," said Hirai. "It is sad to see him departing from SCE, but I wish to express my gratitude for his many invaluable contributions and also wish Phil the very best of luck in his future endeavors."
