Activision UK managing director Peter Hepworth leaves company

Peter Hepworth, managing director for Activision's operations in the UK and Ireland, has left the publisher in order to pursue new opportunities, according to a statement obtained by MCV.

Hepworth started at Activision in 2005 before taking over the managing director position from Andrew Brown, who transitioned to the role of vice president of sales excellence in 2011. With Hepworth leaving the company, Brown will fill the managing director role again on an interim basis until a permanent replacement has been decided.

"We will be continuing to work with Peter on UKIE initiatives and would like to thank him for his many years of service," an Activision representative told MCV.
