Former PlayStation Europe boss David Reeves is to pack up shop and step down as COO of Capcom Europe this coming January, according to statement released recently. The statement – via MCV – notes his departure at the start of the new year and that he is to “revert back to a consulting and advisory role”, one he held before becoming COO in March 2010.
“Over the past three years I have been very fortunate to be able to manage Capcom at an operational level in Europe but I want now to take up several new global consulting opportunities in non-competing industries, which, when combined with my existing and extensive charity commitments, means I cannot commit full-time to my existing role at Capcom Europe,” said Reeves in the statement.
“I have therefore chosen to relinquish the day-to-day management at CEE from the end of January 2013 and revert back to a consulting and advisory role for the company.”
Capcom Europe’s senior director of PR Ben Le Rougetel talked highly of Reeves, saying “his experience has brought CEE both expansion in the PAL Regions and stability within the European entity.” His stay at Capcom might not be as stellar as his 14-year stint at PlayStation, but Capcom was lucky to have him.
