SEGA Europe’s COO and President, Jurgen Post, departs the publisher next month. According to Gamesindustry.biz, Post will be working on “a new opportunity in the entertainment industry.”
John Ward, SEGA Europe’s CFO, will act as interim COO whilst Post’s replacement is sought.
Post spent 10 years at the publisher and leaves a strong legacy in the business after turning around its Western business.
“Jurgen leaving us is a huge loss, but he leaves Sega Europe with the business in a fantastic position and in the capable hands of a superb team who will strive to keep moving it forward. We wish Jurgen all the very best for the future and in his new role and hope that his employees there will find him as inspirational and as motivating as we did here,” said Sega West CEO Tatsuyuki Miyazaki.
