Sony's UK head of sales Kevin Jowett has quit – just five weeks from the launch of PlayStation 3 in Europe.
SCE UK commercial director Jowett has been something of a stalwart within the PlayStation division of Sony. He took over as sales director from Doug Goodwin back in 1998 and has played an integral role within the organisation since then, in particular working closely with retailers over stock allocations on PS2, PSP and, more recently, PS3. He has also taken a keen interest in general retail issues such as pricing and the second-hand games market.
According to MCV Jowett has resigned to pursue new opportunities outside of the games industry and has left the company immediately, due to confidentiality issues.
