David Gosen leaves Microsoft

David Gosen, VP of strategic marketing within Microsoft Europe’s interactive entertainment business, has left the company, MCV writes. Having previously held positions as Nintendo Europe MD and I-Play CEO, Gosen has now decided to move on from Microsoft as well “to explore new opportunities outside of the company”.

The company’s marketing and Live teams are left reporting directly to VP of interactive entertainment EMEA Chris Lewis.

“The Xbox marketing team and Live business in EMEA has made great progress over the last two years, during a phase of consistent investment and innovation,” Lewis stated.

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank David for his contribution as a key player in my leadership team. Looking forward this team will continue to drive Xbox 360 to its biggest ever year overseeing the launches of Project Natal, Halo Reach and Fable III.”
