Square Enix to Be “Fundamentally” Reviewed by New President
Square Enix’s soon-to-be new president Yosuke Matsuda has expressed that he will be fundamentally reviewing all aspects of the company to determine where to invest resources.
With Yoichi Wada stepping down as president, it was announced that Yosuke Matsuda will be replacing him. In a recent Square Enix Holdings briefing session, the to-be president talked about his plans for the company:
“After having succeeded the important role as the president, I plan on reviewing all Square Enix duties, business and assets on a zero-based budgeting standpoint. Due to the radical change of environment, I’d like to fundamentally review what works and what doesn’t work for our company, then cast all of our resources towards extending what makes us successful and thoroughly squeezing out what doesn’t.
As far as a concrete plan on what to expect from us, I will further explain it on another briefing session in the near future, so I kindly ask for your patience. Thank you for your support.”
Matsuda also mentioned his plans to make Phil Rogers, CEO of Square Enix Europe, the new director of Square Enix Holdings.
