Capcom COO stepping down in January to consult in 'non-competing industries'

David Reeves, Capcom's current chief operating officer, is stepping down from his position in January but will remain a consultant for the company and other "non-competing industries," according to a report from MCV.

"Over the past three years I have been very fortunate to be able to manage Capcom at an operational level in Europe," Reeves said in a statement obtained by MCV, "but I want now to take up several new global consulting opportunities in non-competing industries, which, when combined with my existing and extensive charity commitments, means I cannot commit full time to my existing role at Capcom Europe.

"I have therefore chosen to relinquish the day to day management at CEE from the end of January 2013 and revert back to a consulting and advisory role for the company."

Ben Le Rougetel, Capcom's senior director of PR strategy, said that the company is in "the latter stages" of reorganizing based on Reeves' departure and would be making an official statement about the finalized process in January.

Reeves began his tenure at Capcom in early 2010. Prior to that, he served as president and CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment Europe for over 14 years.
