SCEA Publicity Chief Resigns
In an unexpected move, SCEA publicity chief Molly Smith has resigned her post. Smith, who has managed SCEA's formidable PR machine for a decade, left the company yesterday.
Her move comes just a few weeks after the arrival of Peter Dille, from THQ, as senior vice president of marketing. Staff at the Foster City company were told of her departure late yesterday. An official announcement is yet to be made.
The former Senior Director of Communications and Brand Development has been working for SCEA since 1994, before the premiere of the first PlayStation. As a long standing liaison for the company, she had been as associated with SCEA and the PlayStation brand almost as heavily as any other marketing executive on this side of the Pacific. It is unknown who will assume her position at this time.
