Peter Dille leaves SCEA

Peter Dille, the now former Senior Vice President of Marketing at Sony Computer Entertainment America, has left the PlayStation company.

Dille had joined SCEA in the 90s and served numerous different executive positions. He played a key role in the launch of the first PlayStation in 1995. In 1999, he left Sony and joined THQ as the new Vice President of Worldwide Marketing. In 2005, he left THQ and rejoined with SCEA.

SCEA’s provided a full statement on his departure. See it below.

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 endeavors.
