Sony UK MD, Fergal Gara, resigns from role

Fergal Gara, the VP and MD of Sony Computer Entertainment UK, has resigned.

According to Sony, Gara has left to “pursue a new professional venture” and will now be replaced by SCEE’s GM of Nordics, East & South East Europe Warwick Light.

Gara became PlayStation’s UK boss in September 2011, replacing Ray Maguire. Gara came from Asda, where he was in charge of entertainment.

“Fergal is an extremely talented leader, and in his four years managing the UK business has significantly strengthened the brand and made countless contributions to our success,” SCEE president and CEO Jim Ryan said.

“He has also served as a key member of the European Executive team, helping to steer PlayStation to even greater heights. We are extremely grateful for his dedication and for the legacy that he leaves.

“I have complete confidence that Warwick is the right person to replace Fergal in the UK role, and his 20 years of service to Sony has been marked by outstanding performance.”

Gara added: "I have had a fantastic time leading the PlayStation business in the UK and Ireland over the past four years. I am very grateful for having had this opportunity and I want to thank my team who have been amazing and, of course, Jim, for his support along with the wider PlayStation family who have helped make this period as successful as it has been.

"I wish Warwick every success as he takes on the UK and Ireland business at this exciting stage."

PS4 is currently market leader in the UK, so Gara pretty much leaves on a high.
