David Reeves is to retire from his position as President of Sony Computer Entertainment Europe at the end of the month.

Reeves leaves Sony after fourteen years, where he was first responsible for managing the regional offices of SCEE in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. In 2003 Reeves was appointed President and COO of SCEE, before being appointed CEO two years later.

“David’s contribution in firmly establishing the PlayStation brand and expanding the business in Europe/PAL territories in his 14 year tenure at SCEE is immeasurable,” said Kazuo Hirai, President and Group CEO, Sony Computer Entertainment.

“I would like to express my sincere gratitude to David for the many accomplishments he made to the PlayStation business and wish him the best luck in his future endeavours.”

“It has been a wonderful ride with PlayStation,” said David Reeves. “I never got to visit all 106 countries but managed 66. I have just two things to say on leaving: I want to thank all of those people who have supported SCEE and me personally in the past 14 years; you have been magnificent! Secondly, I am going to spend my time now trying to repay society for all I have taken from it. If your children are having physics lessons at the local school or wondering why their ski instructor is very elderly, your car mechanic has a bad back, or the social worker keeps bringing you PSP games, then it could just be me! Good luck to everybody at SCEE and everybody who continues to support us.”

Andrew House, Sony Corporation’s Chief Marketing Officer, will take Reeves’ place as SCEE President as of May 1st.
