ESA president and CEO Michael D. Gallagher has reportedly stepped down from the role he has held since 2007, when he replaced ESA founder Doug Lowenstein.
CNET reports that Gallagher will be temporarily replaced by interim CEO and former senior VP Stanley Pierre-Louis until a permanent replacement is found.
“Together, we have delivered an unbroken string of victories in the states, on Capitol Hill, and before the U.S. Supreme Court, all of which bolster the industry’s ability to create and innovate,” said Gallagher.
The ESA has not yet stated the reason for the sudden change in leadership. GamesIndustry.biz has reached out to the organization for comment.
