Top marketing executive Peter Dille has parted ways with Sony, after five years working with the company. A reason for his leaving has not been given, and his position is yet to be filled, leaving somewhat of a mystery surrounding this sudden move.
Dille worked with Sony on PlayStation throughout the 90s, leaving them for THQ in 1999. He rejoined SCEA in 2006, and you may well remember him for pushing the Move controller on both GDC and E3 stages last year.
SCEA provided a statement to IGN, saying: “Peter has been a dedicated and valued member of the PlayStation team for more than 5 years, leading the North American marketing efforts since PlayStation 3 launch in 2006, as well as helping establish the PlayStation Network as a comprehensive entertainment solution in this territory.
“The leadership of our marketing effort is a key to the continued growth of the PlayStation brand, and the deep bench of executives and marketing team at SCEA will continue to drive the marketing function in North America until we establish a replacement. We wish Peter well in his future endeavors.”
