Sony Corporation announced with a press release the candidates for executive appointments for the current fiscal year, and Andrew House’s name is on the list to continue leading the Game & Network Services Business as President and Ceo of Sony Computer Entertainment.
On June 23rd, the board of directors will approve the list of Corporate Executive Officers, with Kazuo Hirai and Kenichiro Yoshida still posed to retain their position as President and Executive Deputy President respectively. After that, the selection for Group Executives (Including Andrew House) will be submitted to internal approval.
It’s normally quite rare for the candidates on this list not to be eventually confirmed for the role.
House’s candidacy to retain his role should not surprise anyone, considering that under his leadership (started with his election in 2011), Sony launched PS4, that quickly became a dominating force in the home console market, with the game business returning to solid profitability.
