Kazuhiko Abe appointed CEO of Capcom

Kazuhiko Abe is now the president and CEO of Capcom USA and Europe divisions. Abe joined Capcom in 2003 as the General Manager of Management Planning. In 2006, he became Chief Financial Officer for Capcom in Japan. Kazuhiko Abe has also worked for The Mitsubishi Bank and Hikari Tsushin, Inc., the telecom services company. Abe replaces veteran Hiroshi Tobisawa who moves to another position at Capcom. Former PlayStation boss, David Reeves, will now also report to Kazuhiko Abe. There will be no structural alterations at either the US or European office. "Abe-san has proven to be an invaluable asset to Capcom," said Kenzo Tsujimoto, chairman and chief executive officer of Capcom Co., Ltd. "His experience of over seven years with Capcom can only benefit the operations in North America and Europe and strengthen the relationships between the Japanese and Pan-Western territories."
