Due to the impending retirement of Mike Delman, Microsoft has handed over the chief marketing officer position of its Interactive Entertainment Business, which includes all things Xbox 360, to company vet Yusuf Mehdi. Starting on December 5, Mehdi will report directly to IEB president Don Mattrick. No word just yet on who will fill Mehdi’s former position as chief audience officer in the Online Services division, but on an interim basis, all of Mehdi’s directs will report to Qi Lu, head of Online Services.
