Kazuhiko Abe Named New CEO and President of Capcom

Capcom has announced that it has appointed their former Chief Financial Officer (CFO) and General Manager of Management Planning to CEO and President of Capcom U.S.A., Inc. and CE Europe, Ltd. The 7 year Capcom veteran is now responsible for the overall management of North American and European business operations and will oversee the activities between the U.S. and European offices. He will be replacing Hiroshi Tobisawa who ironically enough joined Capcom 7 years ago.

“Abe-san has proven to be an invaluable asset to Capcom,” said Kenzo Tsujimoto, chairman and chief executive officer of Capcom Co., Ltd. “His experience of over seven years with Capcom can only benefit the operations in North America and Europe and strengthen the relationships between the Japanese and Pan-Western territories.”

Congratulations Abe-san! Now keep them good games coming stateside!
