GameStop Promotes Executives, Divides Online and Offline Responsibilities

| | Comments (0)
GameStopGame Retailer GameStop confirmed that it has promoted much of its senior executive staff. The promotions are only odd in that they bear the typical names of senior leadership in a company, but appear to split the company's leadership between objectives, with some focusing on physical retail and others focusing on online delivery. The split leads FI to wonder if GameStop's management will be able to take a coherent approach to game sales, especially in light of publishers' efforts to limit used game sales, GameStop's bread and butter. Read on for details concerning the specific promotions:
Daniel DeMatteo has been promoted to Executive Chairman from Chief Executive Officer. In his new position he will oversee growth objectives for physical stores.

J. Paul Raines has been promoted from Chief Operating Officer to Chief Executive Officer, a position in which he will lead long-term strategic direction and lead the management team.

Tony Bartel has been promoted from Executive Vice President of Merchandising and Marketing to President, a role in which he will oversee digital growth

Also, Robert Lloyd has been confirmed as the company's Chief Financial Officer. He was placed in an interim CFO role earlier this year.
