Sony Computer Entertainment America has lost its senior vice president of Marketing and PlayStation Network, Peter Dille.
Dille had been with the firm for eight years in total, and had participated in the launch of the original PlayStation and the PlayStation 3. He spent 1999 - 2006 at THQ, but then returned to SCEA for a further half-decade.
No reason was given for Dille's exit, but in a statement to IGN SCEA observed that "Peter has been a dedicated and valued member of the PlayStation team for more than 5 years, leading the North American marketing efforts since PlayStation 3 launch in 2006, as well as helping establish the PlayStation Network as a comprehensive entertainment solution in this territory.
"The leadership of our marketing effort is a key to the continued growth of the PlayStation brand, and the deep bench of executives and marketing team at SCEA will continue to drive the marketing function in North America until we establish a replacement. We wish Peter well in his future endeavours."
No immediate replacement has been found.
