Ray Maguire leaves SCEE UK

Sony Computer Entertainment Europe senior vice president and UK managing director Ray Maguire has left his position after 17 years of working at the firm. He’s been with the company since the launch of the original PlayStation, with his role slowly evolving to include control over Sony’s Irish, Nordic, Benelux and Mediterranean regions.

“Having been here right from the start and after a lot of soul searching, I feel that now is the right time for me to move on,” said Maguire.

“I am confident that I can leave the business in the hands of the brilliant teams here in the UK and across Europe that I’ve had the honor of working with. I’ve made so many great friends during my time here and although the thought of leaving was quite tough, it is essential for me to continue to grow.”

SCEE president and CEO Andrew House added: “In a career at SCE spanning over 17 years, Ray has helped establish PlayStation as a household name and a major entertainment brand.

“Ray is consumer focused and over the years has built and maintained a reputation as one of the industry’s most respected senior figures. We wish him luck in his future endeavors.”

As do we, Ray. Good luck!

Thanks, MCV.
