Following John Riccitiello's resignation to return to Electronic Arts as CEO, VG Holding, operating company of BioWare/Pandemic (Mass Effect), has announced the appointment of Greg Richardson as its new CEO. Riccitiello previously acted as part-time CEO of VG Holding, as well as partner for Elevation Partners, the private equity firm that acted to fuse BioWare and Pandemic into BioWare/Pandemic Studios in November of 2005. Richardson has acted as a senior executive with BioWare/Pandemic since company's inception, most recently serving as vice president of commercial operations. A 12 year industry veteran, Richardson has also served as general manager of Electronic Arts' EA Partners division before joining Elevation Partners. Said managing director and co-founder of Elevation Partners Roger McNamee, “The BioWare/Pandemic alliance broke new ground with two of the top independent game studios coming together to collaborate on creative ideas and cutting edge technologies while supporting distinctive cultures and strengths. A catalyst in the creation of this unique venture, Greg is the natural choice to work with the BioWare/Pandemic executives as they continue to create award-winning titles and expand their talent base.” Pandemic's Josh Resnick added, “We have succeeded and will continue to succeed because we have put together an all-star creative, production and operations team. Greg will be a strong addition to the team in his new role as CEO of VG Holdings.”
