Microsoft’s VP of strategic marketing, David Gosen, has resigned from the company.

Microsoft’s marketing and Live teams will now report to VP of interactive entertainment EMEA, Chris Lewis.

“The Xbox marketing team and Live business in EMEA has made great progress over the last two years, during a phase of consistent investment and innovation,” Lewis stated. “I would like to take this opportunity to thank David for his contribution as a key player in my leadership team.

“Looking forward, this team will continue to drive Xbox 360 to its biggest ever year overseeing the launches of Project Natal, Halo Reach and Fable 3.”

Over the course of his career, Gosen held positions as Nintendo Europe MD and I-Play CEO.

His reason for leaving Microsoft was “to explore new opportunities outside of the company”.

Thanks, MCV.
