Florin Leaves EA Publishing Post

Gerhard Florin is leaving his post as executive VP of Western world publishing at video game giant Electronic Arts effective in March.

Florin is a 15-year veteran of the company and played a key role in the firm’s growth and dominance in the European markets. He also later extended his role to cover the United States.

According to MCV, Florin’s desire to keep his family in Europe is a factor in his decision.

Jens Uwe Intat will continue to head up EA’s European publishing operation.
