Sony Appoints John Kodera As President & CEO, Sony Interactive Entertainment

Sony Corp. (SON.L,SNE) and Sony Interactive Entertainment LLC announced that John (Tsuyoshi) Kodera, currently Deputy President of Sony Interactive Entertainment, has been appointed President and CEO, Sony Interactive Entertainment, with immediate effect. Kodera will assume overall operational responsibility for SIE including its game and network services businesses globally.

Current President and Global CEO Andrew House will remain with Sony Interactive Entertainment as Chairman through the year to ensure a smooth transition. House is also stepping down from his role as EVP, Corporate Executive Officer of Sony Corporation, effective immediately.

Kazuo Hirai, President and CEO, Sony Corp., said: "John Kodera has led Sony's network service business since 2013 and played a pivotal role in its growth. Since his appointment as Deputy President of SIE last year, alongside Andy he has also been responsible for the company's overall business strategy and product planning. With the significance of network services increasing across the entire Sony Group, I believe that John is ideally equipped to build on the foundations Andy has left in place, and drive Sony's game and network services business to further growth and excitement going forward."
