Officials from major publisher and developer THQ have announced the appointment of ex-Electronics Boutique president and CEO Jeffrey Griffiths to the company’s board of directors, filling a new seat on the board of the company, which has expanded from five to six directors, and recently completed a stock split, sparking hopes of further growth. Griffiths was president and CEO of Electronics Boutique for four years until the recent merger with GameStop, having worked for the company since 1987. In that time, he took the then 55 store chain from revenues of $26 million to 2,280 stores and $2 billion in revenue at the end of the company’s most 2005 fiscal year. "Jeff is a pioneer in the video game retail business," said Brian Farrell, president and CEO of THQ. "Under his leadership EB led the industry in online distribution, international expansion and innovative marketing and merchandizing strategies. As a member of the THQ board, I'm confident Jeff's deep understanding of the video game market and his innovative approach to retailing will be very valuable in helping THQ achieve our strategic objectives."
