Phil Harrison no longer president of Atari

What will the former Sony man do next?

Phil Harrison is no longer president of Atari, having taken on the role of non-executive director instead.

Harrison joined the company in March last year following a long stint as Sony's very own Dr Manhattan. But Atari has since started focusing on its US business, leaving Namco-Bandai and Sony to handle things in Europe.

"Because of a shift of business operations to the US, Phil Harrison will move from the role of president to that of non-executive director of the group," Atari said in a statement.

"As all board members, he will continue to assist, support and guide the company's strategy,"

The company has also promoted board member Jeff Lapin to chief operating officer of Atari, who will now work with CEO David Gardner in the US to lead the worldwide business.
