Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) will usher in a new era of leadership as it appoints Hermen Hulst and Hideaki Nishino as dual CEOs, following the retirement of former PlayStation chief, Jim Ryan. The new structure will be effective from June 1, 2024. 

Hulst, presently serving as SVP and Head of PlayStation Studios, will command SIE's Studio Business Group. Known for his innovative work across PlayStation consoles and PCs, and his foray into new formats through PlayStation Productions, Hulst will now be in charge of the development, publishing, and business operations of SIE's first-party content.

On his appointment, Hulst remarked:

"I am thrilled to lead the studio business group and continue to build on our success with PlayStation 5, while preparing for the future... The video game industry is one of the largest entertainment industries in the world and has been built on the marriage of content and technology, and I look forward to continuing to push the boundaries of play and entertainment.

Nishino, the current SVP of the Platform Experience Group, will spearhead SIE's Platform Business Group. With his track record in developing experiences and technology for PlayStation products and services, Nishino will continue to oversee technology, products, services, and platform experience. He will also manage third-party publisher and developer relations, and commercial operations.

Nishino expressed his excitement about his new role, stating: 

“We will continue to connect players and creators through world-class products, services, and technology... By working more closely together, we will be positioned to build incredible experiences for an ever-expanding audience now and in the future.”

Hiroki Totoki, who has been filling in as CEO of SIE, will take on the role of Chairman of SIE while also continuing as President, COO, and CFO of Sony Group Corporation. Both Hulst and Nishino will report to Totoki, with Sony confirming the intention for close collaboration between the two.

According to a blog post titled "A Message from Hiroki Totoki – A New Era at Sony Interactive Entertainment," sent to Sony Interactive Entertainment employees on March 13th, Totoki noted that "To continue this growth and momentum, we are moving forward with a new management structure for SIE."
