Greg Leeds has resigned as President of Wizards of the Coast. Effective June 6th, he will be replaced by Chris Cocks, who until recently was Vice President of OEM Technical Sales at Microsoft. Before that, Chris was Vice President of Educational Games at LeapFrog.
Experience with digital game products was clearly important in Hasbro’s choice of Chris to lead WOTC. In an announcement of the leadership change, John Frascotti, President of Hasbro Brands, was quoted as saying:
We’re very excited to welcome Chris to the Wizards of the Coast family. As an avid fan and player with extensive digital experience, I’m confident Chris is the right person to help us build on the tremendous momentum around our brands and take the franchise to the next level by delivering exciting new experiences to our growing and passionate fan base around the world.
