Remember Phil Harrison? The tall, slender Brit who waved his massive arms around Sony’s E3 stage for a few years? Last we heard of him, he’d left Sony to become president of Atari in 2008. The most recent news? He’s left Atari. Yeah, that was fast.
Harrison lost his position as president of the company when Namco Bandi bought it up last year. Recently his tenure on the Atari board expired, thus he left the company along with ex-CEO David Gardner. Replacing Harrison is Nolan Bushnell, being welcomed back to the board having founded Atari way back in 1971.
Atari hasn’t been the most successful of companies recently, but maybe that’ll change with this recent shake-up.
