Electronic Arts has officially appointed Andrew Wilson as its new CEO.
Wilson's previous role was that of executive vice president of the EA Sports label and EA's Origin.
"Let me start by saying I am deeply honored and humbled to become EA's CEO. I have a profound respect and passion for this organization, as well as for our global community of fans, and I'm incredibly motivated to serve our people, our gamers and our shareholders at such an exciting time in our industry," said Wilson in a statement.
"I envision EA as the World's Greatest Games Company," he added. "This is not about what we are aiming for or what we will become. Rather, it is about an unfaltering commitment to what we will be every day. This is an attitude that must drive our culture as one team.
"I also believe EA's strategy is sound. Our focus on our talent, our brands and our platform together with our investment in next-generation consoles, mobile and PC free-to-play, as part of our ongoing transition to digital, is right. But we have plenty of work ahead to ensure our collective success."
EA executive chairman Larry Probst, who was previously in the role seemed convinced that EA had found the right man for the role.
"I am convinced that Andrew was an inspired choice by our Board, and one I expect the team at EA will enthusiastically support," said Probst. "He is a compelling and charismatic communicator who cares deeply about organizational development, teams, and the individual careers of people who work for EA."
