Konami Digital Entertainment has announced the promotion of executive vice president Tomohiro Uesugi to company president, as the publisher has affirmed a new focus to grow brand awarenes and sales in the Americas.
The company will look to Uesugi's "reputation and history as a transformational leader” and “strong track record of driving revenue and promoting organizational development" to boost the Konami brand and product sales in North, Central, and South America.
"I am honored and grateful for the opportunity to serve as the head of our talented and passionate employees, and I have a deep respect for our community of fans," Uesugi stated.
"We will focus on our talent and iconic brands as we continue to provide innovative products for even deeper and more enjoyable experiences to our customers."
Konami's release Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 launched to mixed-reviews this past week – something that had one of the game's creators sounding off on the press and its alleged lack of “professionalism” and “honesty.”
