Activision’s announced David Haddad will become the new CEO of the Guitar Hero franchise.

Former head Dan Rosensweig has left to pursue other opportunities outside the games industry.

Haddad will report directly to Acti-Blizz CEO Mike Griffith.

We would like to thank Dan for his contributions to the Guitar Hero business,” said Griffith.

We widened our leadership in the music gaming genre in 2009.  And now, as we enter 2010, David Haddad, with his broad consumer product and digital/online experience, is the right leader to drive our agenda to improve profitability.”

PR is here.

    Kevin Butler should get the job… he’s outta work due to MAG at the moment.

    After all, the job title ‘CEO of Guitar Hero’ sounds as ridiculous as the make believe job titles in the ps3 ads!

    I love that game franchises are so big that they now require their own CEOs.
