Square Enix has promoted Clinton Foy, previously vice president of business and legal affairs and general counsel for the company, to a chief operating officer role. Foy is now tasked with leading the company's latest business development initiatives and legal affairs, while also continuing to act as the company's general counsel. Prior to the promotion, Foy has worked at Square Enix for nearly six years. He was also previously an attorney at Heller Ehrman, where he worked with clients such as Microsoft and Sony. Mike Fischer, president and chief executive officer at Square Enix, said, "We are pleased to announce the promotion of Clinton Foy to COO." "One of the key new responsibilities of the COO role will be to shape and drive more aggressive business development initiatives in free-to-play, social, mobile, browser, and emerging platforms. Clinton’s valuable experience makes him uniquely qualified to lead our organization in these important areas." Earlier this week, media reports suggested Square Enix is finalizing negotiations with the Quebec government to fund an expansion that will more than double the size of its Eidos Montreal studio to 680 employees.
