Sony Interactive Entertainment has announced an immediate corporate swap with company president and global CEO Andrew House stepping down – his replacement is current deputy company president John Kodera.
House will remain with Sony through the remainder of this year as chairman to ensure a smooth transition in leadership. It’s worth pointing out that Kodera has been with the company since 1992.
Kodera was also made representative director and president of Sony Interactive Entertainment Inc., the company’s legal branch headquartered in Japan. As before, House has become director and chairman.
Within his new responsibilities and position, Kodera will take over the overarching management of Sony Interactive Entertainment as a whole – this includes their game and network arms. Kodera will naturally report to Sony Corporation president and CEO, Kazuo Hirai.
