MCV reports Peter Hepworth, Activision’s managing director of operations for UK and Ireland, has left the company to “pursue new opportunities.”
“We will be continuing to work with Peter on UKIE initiatives and would like to thank him for his many years of service,” an Activision spokesperson told MCV. “In the interim, the Activision Blizzard UK and Ireland business will be overseen by Andrew Brown, Vice-President of Sales Excellence, while we look at a longer term solution.”
Of course, who doesn’t leave a company to “pursue new opportunities”? Even if you’re fired, you can bet your ass that you’ll be “pursuing new opportunities.” No one leaves a company to pursue unemployment.
All kidding aside, we wish Hepworth the very best with his future endeavors.
