Atari Inc appoints Wilson CEO

Atari Inc has appointed Jim Wilson as CEO and president of the company effective immediately

Atari Inc has announced the appointment of Jim Wilson as its CEO and president, effective immediately, assuming the responsibilities which have been overseen by the company's restructuring officer since October 2007.

Wilson has more than 15 years of executive management experience with videogame and entertainment companies including The Walt Disney Company, Vivendi Universal Games, Universal Interactive Studios and Sony Wonder/Sony BMG.

"Atari Inc, with its world-renowned brand and strong library of game franchises, has a tremendous opportunity in North America," said Wilson.

"I look forward to working with the Atari team and shareholders to lead Atari, Inc. into its next phase of growth."

There was still no word whether or not Atari Inc had approved an acquisition offer from majority shareholder Infogrames Entertainment. The company currently faces delisting from NASDAQ for failing to meet certain requirements.
