Tim Ellis exits HMV games division as organizational changes are implemented 

Tim Ellis, head of HMV's games division, has left the company after over six years in the position.

"HMV is currently making a number of organisational changes to some of its head office departments with the key aim of delivering greater customer focus, increased synergies within departmental teams and a more effective multi-channel approach across the business," read a company statement given to GI. "This will involve a small number of people leaving the business, although some new roles are being created as well.

"Further details will be announced shortly, but HMV can confirm that as part of this process it has decided to bring together its technology and games buying teams within the Commercial department, which will now be headed by Ewan Pinder in the new role of Head of Technology and Games. As a result of these changes Tim Ellis is unfortunately leaving the business, though he will depart with our very best wishes and our profound thanks for his huge commitment and contribution to HMV over many years."

HMV reported on Monday holiday sales were down 16%, with game sales not meeting expectations.
