Capcom Europe COO David Reeves steps down

Former PlayStation Europe boss returns to advisory role

David Reeves will step down as Capcom's COO in January, according to reports.


The former PlayStation Europe boss - who retired from the platform holder in April 2009 - has said in a statement, via MCV, that he is to "revert back to a consulting and advisory role".

"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.

"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 said the firm is "in the latter stages of formulating a reorganisation in Europe and will be making an official announcement later in January 2013".
