Hudson U.S. President, CEO John Greiner Resigns

Hudson Soft has announced that John Greiner, CEO and president of U.S. publishing arm Hudson Entertainment, will be stepping down after some 20 years with the company, to be replaced by senior executive and chairman Seiichi Ishigaki.
Hudson Entertainment’s John Greiner has announced that he will resign from his position as CEO and president of Hudson Soft’s North American publishing arm, effective May 15, 2008. He plans to spend more time with his family and pursue personal interests. Greiner worked for Hudson Soft in Japan for 15 years before launching and heading the company’s North American publishing arm, Hudson Entertainment, in 2003. He has been in charge of the U.S. office’s operations since. Hudson Soft has no plans to search for an outside replacement. Instead, Hudson Entertainment’s senior executive and chairman, Seiichi Ishigaki, will assume Greiner’s responsibilities. “Twenty years at one company is a testament to the quality of the Hudson culture,” said John Greiner. “When you are with a company for that long, the people become a major part of your life. My blood is Hudson blue. I will continue to support them long after my departure.” Said Seiichi Ishigaki, Hudson Entertainment chairman: “John Greiner has been a huge part of the Hudson history in the West. We will miss his leadership, and we wish him the best of luck in his personal endeavors. Hudson will continue its mission to deliver the best entertainment products for the North American market.”
