Jason Rubin Becomes President of THQ
THQ has just announced that Danny Bilson, former executive vice president of "Core Games" will be stepping down from his position as president of the company and Jason Rubin, co-founder of Naughty Dog, will take his place.
â€œJasonâ€™s proven track record in the industry speaks for itself, and he is one of the brightest minds in the business,â€ said Brian Farrell. â€œWe believe he can be a game changer and can contribute immensely to executing on our strategy of delivering quality connected core game experiences.â€
â€œTHQ has incredible internal and external game development teams, and an exciting slate of games in its development pipeline,â€ said Jason Rubin. â€œThe recent transformation of THQ into a creator of wholly-owned IP has placed it in a perfect position to leverage future trends in the game business. I look forward to working with the management team and board to realize the companyâ€™s goals.â€
