Video game retailer GameStop announced this morning via press release that the firm’s present CEO Michael K. Mauler has resigned.
His death comes as quite a surprise considering he’d only just started as GameStop’s CEO in February of the year. Mauler’so decision to resign is effective immediately and ends his tenure of more than three years with the business.
Daniel A. DeMatteo will serve as the company’s Chief Executive Officer while the board of directors in GameStop proceeds to search for a permanent CEO. DeMatteo spoke a little about his new temporary appointment whilst at the same time discussing the firm’s CFO, Rob Lloyd, who will work alongside him at this moment.
“Provided my hands and familiarity with the organization and our partners, it is a natural thing for me to assume this function and direct the business now while the board searches for a permanent CEO. I’m pleased to have Rob Lloyd, our CFO, along with his 22 years of experience with GameStop together with me as we all work towards accomplishing against our 2018 goals. We continue to believe in GameStop and the numerous passionate partners that drive our company and are motivated by the opportunities ahead of us. ”
DeMatteo has previously served as the CEO of GameStop at the past, and it has filled other executive roles for more than twenty years, so he has plenty of expertise to guide them during this alteration.
