ESA Names New President

The Entertainment Software Association announced its new president today, naming Mike Gallagher for the position. The former assistant secretary of the Department of Commerce will take over for outgoing ESA president Doug Lowenstein who announced in December he'd be leaving the organization after a 12 year tenure.

Gallagher confirmed during a conference call earlier today that he had no plans to reinstate the old E3 format and that his first duties as president of the ESA would be to "listen" and learn more about the videogame industry's ecosystem. He praised the work of the ESA and the ESRB, pointing to successful efforts by both organization to protect videogames as speech protected by the First Amendment and educating parents on videogame content ratings.
